Intergovernmental Council approved roadmap for extending cooperation between Union States in aircraft engineering

The Eurasian Intergovernmental Council has approved an Action plan (roadmap) for extending industrial cooperation in the field of civil aviation in the Eurasian Economic Union States for 2022-2023.

"There is awareness in our countries that our Union's enterprises have high potential in the aircraft engineering and we should fulfill it in full. There are technological and personnel capabilities for this and we should only join our efforts", noted Artak Kamalyan, EEC Minister in charge of Industry and Agriculture. 
The measures outlined in the roadmap include forming the Eurasian technology platform "Civil Aircraft Engineering", dealing with financing issues, developing the academic mobility, improving the Union countries' regulatory framework in this field as well as conducting extensive analytics. The document’s key objective is to form cooperation chains of aircraft engineering enterprises in the Eurasian space. 

"We continue our active work on uniting our Union’s aircraft engineering enterprises into single production processes. A Single List of interested industrial enterprises of the EAEU States ready to participate in implementing joint cooperation projects in the aircraft engineering has already been formed and is updated on a permanent basis", Artak Kamalyan reported. “At present, a list of suppliers interested in cooperation according to the List of accessory equipment contracted under the import substitution program for MC-21 aircraft systems has been received from the Russian party represented by Irkut Corporation".
The EEC Minister has stressed that nowadays the EAEU countries address the issue of developing cooperation with enterprises-potential suppliers for this list of accessory components.

For reference

In December 2020, the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council set the task to extend the EAEU States’ industrial cooperation in the field of aircraft engineering and establish a commission on import substitution in high-tech manufacturing industries, including the aircraft industry. This work objective is to intensify cooperation in the aircraft engineering, search for new cooperative chains and create added value in the Union’s territory.
