EEC Council approved roadmap for eliminating exceptions and restrictions in EAEU internal market

At its meeting held on October 5, the Eurasian Economic Commission’s Council approved a plan (roadmap) for eliminating exceptions and restrictions in the EAEU internal market. The document designed up to December 2022 contains 35 measures.
"The result of efficient work carried out by the Commission and representatives of the Union countries’ public authorities has been reflected in the new roadmap. This is one of the key documents of the medium-term strategic planning aimed at removing the most significant obstacles identified by the Heads of Government of the EAEU countries. Implementing the roadmap will ensure developing and extending integration processes, making the Union’s internal market functioning even more stable", noted Gegham Vardanyan, EEC Minister in charge of Internal Markets, Informatization, Information and Communication Technologies.

Over the course of implementing the roadmap measures, it is planned, in particular, to remove 14 obstacles: 13 restrictions and 1 exception. It bears reminding that the list includes obstacles related to the recognition of documents on academic degrees and titles, driver's licenses, the circulation of superpotent substances and cultural values as well as other significant obstacles in the Union’s internal market.

The report on initial results will be presented at the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council’s meeting in November 2021.
