3/4/2020

          Members of the Eurasian Economic Commission’s Council agreed upon several more items within the draft Strategic Directions for Developing the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025. The discussion was held via videoconferencing on March 4 at the EEC’s headquarters.

            "The draft Strategy until 2025 is a fundamentally new format in the Eurasian Economic Union, since it includes specific measures and mechanisms of direct action", - stressed Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chairman of the EEC Board.

            "The countries have already agreed more than 320 items, only eight events remain uncoordinated, - the Head of the EEC noted, - besides, nine new proposals have been received from Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus, which need to be discussed and agreed in the near future".

            The meeting has agreed on the wording in the sphere of antitrust regulation, taxation and trade policy.

            The Commission is working on the document jointly with the sides in accordance with the instruction given by the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council. The next discussion round is scheduled for March 16.

            The revised draft will be submitted for consideration by the Heads of Government of the Union countries in April this year, followed by its approval by the Heads of State at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in May.​
