MINSK, 27 May (BelTA) – The development of integrated information systems is the key to removing obstacles in the internal market of the Union State of Belarus and Russia, Belarus' Deputy Economy Minister Alesya Abramenko said at the Eurasian Economic Forum, BelTA learned from the press service of the Economy Ministry.
The deputy minister told the participants of the forum about Belarus-Russia efforts to remove existing and prevent new barriers in mutual trade. “In order to help our economies adapt to unprecedentedly harsh and overwhelming sanctions, we need systemic approaches to prop up the real economic sector. First of all, it is necessary to develop and support joint import substitution projects that will help stabilize the industry amidst the shrinking critical imports. It is also important to create integrated information systems (platforms), organize information interaction and exchange of information. Coupled with joint projects, this is the key to preventing new obstacles,” Alesya Abramenko said.
The forum in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, has become an effective platform for the exchange of views between government officials, businesses, and representatives of the academic community of the five countries about the state and prospects of the EAEU.
