15 May 2024 More than three hundred applications from eleven countries were submitted to participate in the 2nd Green Eurasia International Climate Competition. The acceptance of applications for the Green Eurasia Competition has ended. Its purpose is to select the most effective practices in climate mitigation, adaptation and sustainable development. Commercial organizations, non-profit organizations, government agencies, authorities, associations and individuals of Member States of the Eurasian Economic Union and third countries will take part in the competition. The organizers of the competition are the Eurasian Economic Commission and the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI). “In addition to the EAEU states, among the applications we can note projects from partner countries in the CIS (Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan), as well as from far abroad - China, Iran, Egypt, Indonesia, Cameroon,” said Andrey Slepnev, EEC Minister in charge of Trade. “The largest number of applications was submitted in the areas of low-carbon transport, energy and forest climate projects.” The Minister clarified that the next stage will be the assessment of applications by an expert group of representatives of the professional community, after which the winners and finalists will be determined by the presidium of the competition. “Since the geography of the competition this year was expanded - we accepted applications from all countries - the range of practices is truly diverse. We are confident that the competition will be a useful tool for sharing the best climate solutions. It is important that participants see the potential for replicability in each other’s practices and are able to adapt them to their needs,” said ASI General Director Svetlana Chupsheva.  The partners of Green Eurasia are Gazprombank, Promsvyazbank and the Melnichenko Foundation, each of which will highlight projects in their own categories. The results of the competition are expected to be announced at the Eurasian Economic Forum, timed to coincide with the meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council scheduled for September-October 2024 in Yerevan (Republic of Armenia).
14 May 2024 New version of the rules for determining the origin of goods from developing and the least developed countries approved The Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission has decided to modernize the rules for determining the origin of goods from developing and the least developed countries - users of the unified system of tariff preferences of the Eurasian Economic Union. The updated version contains a package of comprehensive amendments, which provide for improvement of the procedure for documentary confirmation of origin of goods, simplification of conditions for importers to obtain tariff preferences, optimization of provisions on administrative cooperation with beneficiary countries, as well as a number of other changes prepared in terms of the existing five-year law enforcement practice. In particular, the possibility to confirm the origin of goods applying for tariff preferences by a copy of the document of origin instead of its original is fixed on a permanent basis. In addition, the requirement to purchase goods exclusively from persons registered in countries that are users of the unified system of tariff preferences of the EAEU has been abolished. "The adopted decision is an effective measure to adapt the rules applied in the Union to modern trade conditions and minimize existing difficulties with confirmation to the customs authorities of the EAEU Member States of the preferential origin of the supplied goods," said EEC Trade Minister Andrey Slepnev. He added that these changes are also a continuation of the Union's consistent work on the implementation of support measures for the least developed countries, the need for which is regularly discussed on the platform of the World Trade Organization. The Decision shall come into effect after 60 calendar days from the date of its official publication.  For reference The rules for determining the origin of goods from developing and the least developed countries were approved by Decision of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission No. 60 dated June 14, 2018. The lists of countries-users of the unified system of tariff preferences of the EAEU are established by the Decision of the Customs Union Commission No. 130 dated November 27, 2009. The list of goods in respect of which tariff preferences are granted was approved by Decision of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission No. 8 dated January 13, 2017.
