Integration agreements between Russia and Belarus can be called historical, they bring relations between the two countries to a fundamentally new level. This was stated by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin at a meeting with his deputies on Monday.
He recalled that last week the heads of the Cabinet of Ministers of Russia and Belarus approved 28 programs for the development of the Union State and the main directions for the implementation of the provisions of the agreement on the creation of this association.
“Without exaggeration, this decision can be called historic. Integration agreements take Russian-Belarusian relations to a fundamentally new level, open the way for the formation of a common economic space, conduct a common macroeconomic policy, provide clear guidelines for joint work in various areas – from industry and energy to transport and agro-industrial complex “, – emphasized Mishustin.
According to the prime minister, “this is an important and big step forward.” “By combining their economic potentials, Russia and Belarus will be able to achieve great success both in the domestic market and in international trade. The business of the two countries will be able to launch new promising projects, and our citizens will have equal opportunities for work, receiving social support, and access to education. “, – added Mishustin.
He stressed that “the adoption of these documents is a significant, but far from the final stage on the way to the formation of a common economic space.” According to him, the parties have a lot of work to do, primarily in the customs, tax spheres, and in the unification of payment systems. In addition, a number of solutions are to be launched to deepen interaction in transport, trade, tourism, communication networks and in other areas.
“I ask the heads of all ministries and departments involved in this work to act as quickly and efficiently as possible, in close contact with our Belarusian colleagues.
