Belarus’ PM calls for permit-free road haulage in EAEU

ALMATY, 2 February (BelTA) - The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member states should switch to permit-free international road haulage, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said at the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council meeting in Almaty, Kazakhstan on 2 February, BelTA has learned.

“A lot has been done in the transport and logistics sector for ten years of the Union's existence. Present day however dictates us a completely different pace of work. We need to accelerate. We see a significant reserve in the railroad transportation industry. The issue of switching to a permit-free system in the international carriage of goods by road, including those from third countries, remains relevant. So far, this work has been carried out mainly on a bilateral basis. We have formalized agreements with our counterparts from Kyrgyzstan and Russia. We expect Armenia and Kazakhstan to join this initiative and the EEC to be more actively involved in this process,” Roman Golovchenko said.

In his words, all EAEU states are by and large transit states. “We have a common interest, which can be realized only through the alignment of efforts and the implementation of a coordinated policy,” the prime minister added.
