MINSK, 8 June (BelTA) – The economies of the EAEU member states remained stable despite the destructive external pressure, Belarus' Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said at the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council meeting in Sochi, BelTA has learned.
“At the initiative of the Russian Federation, we have embarked on the next stage of strategic planning - the assessment of the EAEU development prospects for the period of 2030-2045. Belarus supports this work in every way, since now is the time to decide on further approaches to our cooperation, to frankly answer questions as to what we want to achieve in the near future, what we should focus on, how to use our competencies efficiently in order to make the most of the windows of opportunity,” said Roman Golovchenko.
According to him, Belarus' vision of Eurasian economic integration is in many respects in tune with the priorities of the Russian chairmanship in the EAEU bodies. “We stand for the multi-stage development of the union, a drastic improvement of its effectiveness. We are glad that we have managed to maintain economic stability in the EAEU member states and to ramp up mutual trade in the EAEU despite the destructive external pressure. We have intensified efforts to achieve a number of important goals in the near term, such as technological sovereignty, self-sufficiency in transport and logistics and integration of the EAEU transport infrastructure into the global logistics system,” the prime minister noted.
