Memorandums of cooperation have been signed with new participants of the Eurasian Agroexpress project

On the sidelines of the Eurasian Economic Forum in Bishkek, a number of documents have been signed between the directorate of the Eurasian Agroexpress project – Autonomous Non-Profit Organization "Eurasian Agrologistics" – and new participants.

They include memorandums of cooperation with the Russian National Dairy Producers Union and the Russian National Union of Poultry Producers, as well as a memorandum of strategic partnership and cooperation with the National Company "Kyrgyz Temir Zholu" carrying out rail transportation in the Kyrgyz Republic. Moreover, the signing of a memorandum with KTZ Express JSC (Republic of Kazakhstan) has been announced.

"The signing of the documents reconfirms the interest of businesses in the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union in the implementation of the Eurasian Agroexpress project that has entered its practical stage already. An increase in the number of participants will undoubtedly contribute to growing supplies of agricultural products, which will enable railway operators to organize regular transportation at a special tariff," Andrey Slepnev, Minister in charge of Trade of the Eurasian Economic Commission, noted.

The ceremony has taken place as part of opening the Business Dialogue of the EEC Trade Unit dedicated to promising markets and opportunities for exports of the EAEU products.
