A new EU-funded Twinning project to improve the quality of service and market access in telecommunications in Ukraine was launched on 29 November.

The project involves a consortium of Lithuanian and Latvian regulatory authorities, in cooperation with Ukraine’s National Commission for the State Regulation of Communications and Informatization (NCCIR).

The upgraded system should ultimately enable customers to choose from a wider variety of innovative e-communications services at lower prices and of higher quality.

Under the framework of the project, EU experts and their Ukrainian counterparts will jointly draft proposals for amendments to Ukrainian legislation relating to the quality of services and market access to align it with the EU telecommunications acquis.

The project will also prepare a set of recommendations to foster market competition in Ukraine by ensuring equal access conditions to all market players and applying EU best practices in market analysis at the NCCIR.
