Since 2007, the Brazilian government has undertakesn efforts to improve the quality of regulation in the country and thus improve Brazilian competitiveness abroad and foster economic growth. Administrative simplification is one of the key elements required in regulatory reform to achieve a favourable business environment and the reduction of barriers to entrepreneurship, investment and technological innovation, especially for micro and small businesses. This action consists in the development of a plan for administrative simplification to reduce bureaucratic excesses and administrative burdens arising from regulation that affects Brazilian micro and small enterprises. The initiative includes the hiring of a foreign expert to analyse pioneering experiences in EU countries (in the Netherlands, Belgium and Portugal) in administrative simplification aimed at reducing the regulatory burden on micro and small enterprises. There will also be studies aimed at identifying the current state of regulatory initiatives that affect Brazilian micro and small enterprises. The work will be focused on federal regulatory agencies and will detail burdens and redundant bureaucratic procedures and the degree of uncertainty within the business environment, based on international best practices. The action also provides for the organisation of the "International Seminar on Administrative Simplification and Reduction of Regulatory Administrative Burdens", in Brasilia, which will disseminate the findings of studies.
