One of the civil society's tasks is to exert control over activities and intentions of the government. Public monitoring and supervision, examination and verification are natural functions of non-governmental organizations (NGOs).
The ULIE plays an important consolidating part in the Ukrainian society while uniting more than 100 NGOs and industrial associations. In late 2014, they created the Anti-Crisis Council of NGOs, which under incredible crisis conditions drew up an anti-crisis program of joint actions of the government and businesses – a substantial package of bailout measures – and handed it over to the government.
The ULIE actively cooperates with new non-governmental initiatives that unite young businessmen and modern leaders, including Nova Kraina, Reanimation Package of Reforms initiatives, etc.
The ULIE, the same as the entire civil society, sees its task in the establishment of an effective partnership with the government at all levels, permanent control over its activities, public monitoring, control and supervision of the implementation of its decisions, identification of corruption and the fight against it.
In April 2014, the ULIE signed a partnership and cooperation memorandum with the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. The sides decided that the most important for the country economic decisions would be approved taking into account experience and expert proposals of representatives of the real sector of economy.
It also signed a memorandum with the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine (SFSU) aimed at the protection of legal rights and interests of taxpayers, improvement of business climate in the country, development of partnership between the government and businesses. A permanent Coordinating Commission of the ULIE and SFSU was created to consider problems that emerge in the process of tax administration, draw up proposals for draft regulations aimed at the improvement of the taxes and charges raising procedure.
The League also signed agreements with the Anti-Monopoly Committee, the National Commission for Energy Regulation, Ukreximbank and the majority of regional state administrations.
Some 50 the ULIE representatives are members of public councils and boards of central and regional executive agencies. The Council of Entrepreneurs under the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine led by the deputy president of the ULIE and the president of the Ukrainian Agrarian Confederation, Leonid Kozachenko, is a partner of the ULIE.
