ADVOCACY

We advocate both legislative&regulatory reform and national&regional priorities in economic development.

The base for our legislative&regulatory work is an annual survey Competitiveness Report that assesses government policy in six areas using both statistics and opinion surveys. Our team has been involved in the introduction of social security caps, bankruptcy reform, commercial registry reform, training courses for the judiciary, more liberal rules for financial collateral, numerous amendments to the Labor Code and Commercial Code, Platform for Transparent Public Tenders, Best regulator project, the entry of the Czech Republic into the US visa waiver program etc.

We are also advocates in the area of national and regional priorities in economic development. We are building co-operation between universities and companies, and we are working with municipalities to expand their public infrastructure to match the growth of the private sector.

AmCham supports the Council on Czech Competitiveness, a discussion and advocacy platform for a better economic policy of the Czech Republic.
