Eldar Alisherov, Minister in charge of Customs Cooperation of the Eurasian Economic Commission, held a working meeting with representatives of the largest marketplaces of the Eurasian Economic Union.

Eldar Alisherov informed them about the progress in ratification of the Protocol on Amendments to the EAEU Customs Code in terms of regulating foreign electronic commerce and the work conducted by the Commission to prepare acts in its furtherance.
