Belarus notes progress in achieving Eurasian Economic Union’s strategic goals

MINSK, 27 October (BelTA) – Member states of the Eurasian Economic Union have managed to secure considerable progress in reaching strategic goals of the union, Belarus Prime Minister Andrei Kobyakov said during the expanded-participation session of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council in Minsk on 27 October, BelTA has learned.

“The year 2016 is extremely complicated and challenging with regard to the development of our economies and the evolution of the Eurasian Economic Union,” said Andrei Kobyakov. “In a number of important areas in these complicated conditions we have managed to achieve either concrete positive results or have managed to secure considerable progress in reaching the strategic goals of the union, which are stipulated by the Eurasian Economic Union Treaty of 29 May 2014.”

Work has begun on the priority areas of industrial cooperation in the EEU. The concept of a common market for gas, oil and petroleum products in the EEU was approved this year. “Adopting these concepts is only the first step towards the formation of the common energy market of the Eurasian Economic Union in 2019-2025,” the Prime Minister said.

The EEU has passed the technical regulations setting the optimal requirements to ensure the necessary level of safety of products circulated in the common market.

Andrei Kobyakov voiced his confidence that the EEU meeting in Minsk will make a major contribution to the promotion of the Eurasian economic integration. The Belarusian Prime Minister thanked his colleagues for supporting Belarus’ proposal to approach the EEU existing issues in the most realistic manner. “Given the number of issues that require consideration, our today's meeting was timely. In a way, our meeting was an opportunity for stocktaking prior to the EEU summit in December,” he said.Belarus notes progress in achieving Eurasian Economic Union’s strategic goals
