The Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) plans at a meeting on March 31 to consider a draft of the main directions of cooperation between the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) in the industrial sphere. This was stated on Wednesday by Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Igor Petrishenko, meeting with a member of the board (minister) for industry and agro-industrial complex Artak Kamalyan.
“The draft document that is being prepared for the next meeting of the EEC Council on March 31 is a draft of the main directions of industrial cooperation for the next five years. This document will be an important element of the work of your bloc and all your industrial partners in the EAEU countries,” the Deputy Prime Minister said , whose statements were disseminated by the press service of the Belarusian government.
Petrishenko considers it important to use the available financial mechanisms for the development of cooperation between the EAEU countries in the industrial sphere. “The heads of state in the development strategy of the EAEU prescribed specific directions on how to use financial mechanisms for the development of the industrial direction of interaction within the EAEU and the agro-industrial sphere,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
“We hope that in the agro-industrial complex you will be actively involved in the creation of the Eurasian food market,” Petrishenko noted, addressing the EEC Minister.
Kamalyan believes that a lot has been done within the framework of industrial cooperation within the EAEU over the past few years. “But there is still much to be done. I do not think that we have even reached the middle of the level that I would consider sufficient for industrial cooperation,” said the EEC Minister. He hopes that the EAEU states will overcome the negative consequences of the impact of the pandemic on the national industrial and agro-industrial sectors. “I hope that we will defeat this infection (in 2021, the coronavirus infection). This problem will go away, and I do not think that there are any obstacles in terms of limiting the growth of both industry and agriculture,” the minister said EEC.
On February 1, Artak Kamalyan took up the duties of a member of the board (minister) of the Eurasian Economic Commission for Industry and Agro-industrial Complex.
