The session was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Igor Petrishenko.
Viktor Nazarenko said: “A serious discussion is in progress about the improvement of procedures for dismantling barriers in mutual trade.” In his words, EAEU leaders want the Council and the Board of the Eurasian Economic Union as well as the national governments to dismantle unwarranted prohibitions and restrictions on trade.
“Today members of the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission seriously discussed ways to improve the methodology and how to arrange things in a way to be able to discuss a number of concrete issues at every session,” Viktor Nazarenko noted. “We would like all our oversight bodies to operate within limits of the legislation. We would like any measures that restrict mutual trade to be justified and enacted within the framework of the documents that we have and we abide by now.”
