The prospects of interaction in the field of transport, and the issues of preparing documents defining the regulation of road, rail, water and air transport were discussed by Arzybek Kozhoshev, Minister in charge of Energy and Infrastructure of the Eurasian Economic Commission, and Alexei Lyakhnovich, Minister of Transport and Communications of Belarus. The meeting was held during the visit of the EEC Minister to Minsk from November 15 to November 17.
The parties discussed in detail the preparation of the road map for implementing the Main Directions of the EAEU countries' transport policy for 2024-2026. Arzybek Kozhoshev outlined the road map activities, whereby fundamental disagreements at the expert level were identified, and proposed a work algorithm.
"At this stage, it is most essential to take the discussions beyond the draft document, to continue work on controversial revisions at consultative and advisory platforms of the Commission, to reach compromise solutions and to supplement the road map. The document should be adopted by the Heads of Government in H1 of 2024,” the EEC Minister noted.
The Eurasian and Belarusian Ministers agreed that they would discuss the implementation of transport policy, the problems of sectoral integration and its prospects at the next meeting of the Council of Heads of Authorized Transport Bodies of the Eurasian Economic Union Member States.
An Action Plan (road map) for implementing the Main Directions and Implementation Stages of the Coordinated (Agreed) Transport Policy of the Eurasian Economic Union Member States is formed for every three years as part of implementing Decision No. 19 of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council dated December 26, 2016 "On the Main Directions and Implementation Stages of the Coordinated (Agreed) Transport Policy of the Eurasian Economic Union Member States". At present, efforts are taken on the road map for 2024-2026.
