MOSCOW, 6 December (BelTA) – The formation of a traceability system for goods will become the first project of the digital agenda of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), Karine Minasyan, Minister in charge of Internal Markets, Information Support, Information and Communication Technologies of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), noted at the fourth Eurasian Economic Congress in Moscow on 6 December, BelTA has learned.
“The practical implementation of the EAEU digital agenda has started. The prime ministers of five countries have already adopted the implementation mechanism. The first project will be about setting up a traceability system for goods,” Karine Minasyan said.
In October 2017, the EAEU presidents signed a document to define the EAEU digital agenda, she recalled. The document envisages that the EAEU member states will not put up barriers in the digital sphere. Quite the opposite, they will team up to position themselves on the global digital market.
Organized with support of the Eurasian Economic Commission, the congress has gathered about 800 participants. It serves as a venue for a dialogue between the business community, the EEC, government bodies of the EAEU member states, professional and non-governmental organization. One of the main discussion topics is resetting the relations between Eurasian countries. Separate sessions at the congress are dedicated to the EAEU Customs Code, the functioning of a common medicines market, formation of a common energy market, and development of industrial cooperation.
