The new mechanism will significantly help realize the accumulated potential for developing and strengthening the real sector of the economy”, noted the EEC Minister. “Therefore, it is necessary to work more actively with the businesses of our countries to develop promising cooperation projects.”   As part of the discussion, the parties noted the expediency of consolidating the EAEU industrial potential through the establishing non-financial mechanisms for promoting cooperation development, and also agreed to update the EAEU Industrialization Map posted on the official website of the Union. Today, this document includes 158 major investment and significant projects in 25 industries. The meeting also approved further work on developing the EAEU electronic service containing information about industrial and innovative infrastructure of Member States. For reference The Commission on Cooperation and Import Substitution in Priority and High-Tech Industries within the Eurasian Economic Union was established by Disposition No. 225 of the EEC Board dated December 20, 2022.
