MOSCOW, 18 October (BelTA) – First Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus Aleksandr Turchin and Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Maksim Akimov met in Moscow on 18 October. They managed to fix differences of opinion on some of the draft roadmaps the future program on tighter integration in the Union State of Belarus and Russia needs, BelTA has learned.
After the meeting Aleksandr Turchin did not specify the problems the sides had been able to reconcile views on. “Let's pass the documents first. We will talk about them in detail later on,” he said.
According to the first deputy prime minister of Belarus, the meeting touched upon a broad range of matters relating, in particular, to informatization and communications, customs affairs. “Today we've also discussed the roadmaps our government agencies are developing and the matters Maksim Akimov and I oversee,” Aleksandr Turchin noted. “Those are the matters, let's say, of digital seals [intelligent electronic locks] and the labelling of goods. We hope today we've found the ways that will allow implementing our agreements primarily without detriment to Belarusian business and Russian one.”
Before the meeting Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Maksim Akimov stated that the sides intended to discuss draft roadmaps concerning the creation of the joint system for labelling and tracking goods, transport control, the common communications market, and informatization.More about Politics
