MINSK, 9 June (BelTA) – Belarus' Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko outlined development prospects for the EAEU as he talked to reporters in Sochi, BelTA has learned.
“We fully realized the benefits of being part of the Eurasian Economic Union when we had to redirect our export flows from West to East. It is hard to say what would have happened had we not been member of the union. I think it wouldn't be that effective,” said Roman Golovchenko.
According to him, now the priority is to advance from trade relations to closer cooperation in the technological field. “We are trying to push this policy. It fully coincides with the priorities of the Russian chairmanship in the EAEU bodies. The positions of Belarus and Russia are aligned in this matter. We believe that the union will only grow stronger if we have more partners in trade, and also more partners in production, R&D, inventions,” the prime minister said.
These days Sochi hosted the meetings of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council and the CIS Heads of Government Council.
