Regulatory Initiative is implemented within Business Support Organizations (BSOs) School 2nd Component “On Guard for Business Interests”. USAID CEP’s BSOs School is a two-year initiative to promote existing BSOs and create new BSOs in small cities throughout Ukraine, with two components. The 1st, implemented by CIVITTA, focuses on involving small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in local economic governance, establishing dialogue, and the joint efforts of local authorities and entrepreneurs for local economic development. The 2nd component, implemented by the East European Foundation, aims to monitor local authorities’ activities and increase transparency between local businesses and local government.
