​Mr. Glaziev, Member of the Board – Minister in charge of Integration and Macroeconomics of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), held a meeting with the participation of the Business Council of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and business associations of the Union's countries. An integrated plan for implementation of measures and mechanisms of the Strategic Directions of Development for Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025 was discussed.

The EEC Minister reminded the participants of the fact that the draft of the Strategic Directions was generally approved at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in May 2020. " With the exclusion of around 20 items, we can start working on all the rest. That is around 300 measures reflected in the document," emphasized Mr. Glaziev. "We have a very specific task today — to come up with a general matrix for development of interaction between the Commission and business groups in the implementation of the Strategic Directions Until 2025."

The participants made a number of points when discussing the detailed plan of the Strategic Directions. These include enhancing the transparency in decision-making processes and improving the quality of coordination of actions between the Commission and business in terms of technical regulation and standardization, raising the activity of the EAEU's business groups in detecting tariff and non-tariff barriers in the domestic and external markets.

The participants also discussed the EEC's initiative to hold regular polls among entrepreneurs in order to get information on the progress of the Eurasian integration and what effect it has on business. The poll results are planned to be provided to the Eurasian Inter-governmental Council in 2021.

Special mention was made of fighting against dishonest importers, the problem of serial certificates and making control in this area more efficient with the use of digital tools.

Mr. Zhaksylykov, Member of the Board – Minister in charge of Economy and Financial Policy of the EEC, who participated in the meeting, pointed out that in order to extensively involve business communities, non-governmental organization, and individuals in the processes of the EAEU functioning, some measures may be suggested that would form a positive image of the Eurasian economic integration and help create a crowd-sourcing platform for ideas and initiatives that can be implemented on the Union's basis.
