The EEC will support cooperation of the EAEU countries in agricultural engineering and sign a Memorandum of Cooperation with the veterinary service of Mongolia

9/12/2017

The issues of trade, industrial policy, veterinary and phytosanitary control, as well as customs cooperation of the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) were discussed at the session of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) on September 12.

The Memorandum of Cooperation between the Eurasian Economic Commission and the Main Department of Specialized Veterinary, Sanitary and Quarantine Phytosanitary Inspection of Mongolia approved by the EEC Board will help to prevent spreading animal diseases, dangerous veterinary and sanitary products and quarantine harmful organisms in the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and Mongolia.

Agreement on development of cooperation in this area was achieved in March 2017, during the working visit of the Member of the Board - Minister in charge of Technical Regulation of the EEC, Valerya Koreshkov, in Mongolia.

Interaction within the framework of the Memorandum will be implemented, in particular, through the exchange of regulatory, technical and other documents of mutual interest,” Valery Koreshkov emphasised. ”Training seminars, scientific and practical conferences and cooperation practitioners will help expand trade and economic links between the EAEU countries and Mongolia, as well as will enhance the veterinary control in livestock and crop production.” 

For discussion of current issues in the field of veterinary and phytosanitary controls, a Working Group was established.

Members of the Board instructed the EEC Minister, Valery Koreshkov, to sign the Memorandum during his working visit to Mongolia in October this year.

The EEC Board approved the list of enterprises of the Eurasian Economic Union, producing items for the joint manufacture of spare parts for agricultural machinery and equipment. It includes more than 40 producers of diesel engines, hydraulic systems, transmissions, bearings, as well as electronic components and satellite navigation elements.

The list is approved within the framework of the EEC recommendations “On development of cooperative cooperation of the Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union in the field of agricultural engineering.” The document recommends that the countries of the Union, when organizing production in the field of agricultural engineering, follow the said list, as well as the list of potential consumers of counterparts produced in third countries of components for agricultural machines and equipment.

"Formation of cooperative chains for production of component counterparts for agricultural machinery already today enables establishing effective import substitution production facilities in the EAEU," the Member of the Board - Minister in charge of Industry and Agroindustrial Complex, Sergey Sidorskiy, emphasised.

The list of manufacturers of elements for the joint production of spare parts for agricultural machinery and equipment included industrial enterprises of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. These include Belorussian JSC Minsk Motor Plant and JSC Minsk Bearing Plant, Kazakhstan PC Ural Foundry Mechanical Plant and JSC Kirov Zavod, Kyrgyzstan Avtomash-Radiator LLC, Russian Chelyabinsk Tractor Factory URALTRAC LLC and PJSC Avtodizel (YaMZ) - over 40 enterprises in total. Their capacities allow producing 39 items of components for agricultural machinery and equipment: elements and systems of internal combustion engines and hydraulics, automated transmissions, automatic centralized lubrication systems, bridges, bearings, batteries, as well as electronic components and satellite navigation system.

The EEC Board approved the structure and format of electronic documents for calculating the amount of security of the obligation on payment of customs duties and taxes. The decision was made within the framework of the technical implementation of the innovation of the EAEU Customs Code concerning the ability to release goods from customs points prior to the completion of the examination of customs and other documents and information.

Structure of the calculation is a set of information that should be included in the electronic customs forms of the EAEU states. In fact, this is a technical task, which the developers of the Union countries will follow when upgrading software and technical resources of the customs services in accordance with the innovations of the EAEU Customs Code. 

Previously, the EEC Board, by its decision No. 112 dated September 4, 2017 (см.:www.eurasiancommission.org/ru/nae/news/Pages/4-09-2017-1.aspx), established uniform requirements for information set, the form of filling in and the procedure for calculation of the amount securing the performance of the obligation on payment of customs duties, taxes, special, antidumping, and countervailing duties.
