PM: EAEU makes headway to remove restrictions in trade

MINSK, 21 October (BelTA) - A lot of work has been done in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU)to remove barriers and restrictions in trade, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said at a meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council in Yerevan on 21 October, BelTA has learned.

"Barriers and obstacles in the EAEU market are a traditional topic. I will express the position of the Belarusian side. Indeed, obstacles still remain. But a lot of work has been done. We are clearing the problems that piled up not because countries impose new barriers, but because the national laws were not harmonious with the EAEU legislation. This is a long way. We had to go through complex procedures," Roman Golovchenko noted.

Belarus, for its part, would take all necessary measures to address these issues, he stressed. "We have already made most of the necessary decisions to eliminate the things in the national legislation that were qualified as barriers. We hope that the work on the removal of barriers and restrictions in trade will not last long," the prime minister said.
