MOSCOW, 21 April (BelTA) – The Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) has approved draft agendas for the upcoming meetings of the presidents and prime ministers of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member states, official representative of the Eurasian Economic Commission Iya Malkina said at a briefing following the EEC Council meeting held in Moscow on 20-21 April, BelTA has learned.

The Supreme Eurasian Economic Council will convene in Moscow on 24-25 May. “The heads of state will be briefed on key areas of the EAEU's international activities in 2022 and on the progress to implement the 2025 strategy. The Supreme Eurasian Economic Council will review the EAEU's efforts to promote cooperation with its trade and economic partners, as well as liberalization plans for a number of service sectors in the EAEU and other issues,” Iya Malkina said.

The presidents are expected to sign a protocol on amending the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union. The amendments will allow allocating funds for joint projects of the EAEU states in manufacturing. In addition to that, the presidents are expected to sign a package of amendments to the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union - the so-called III Big Protocol.

The meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council will be hosted by Sochi on 7-9 June. “The prime ministers will be briefed on progress to remove barriers impeding efficient operation of the EAEU internal market. They will hear out a report on the creation and development of transport infrastructure along the East-West and North-South corridors in the EAEU states, including infrastructure projects as part of the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative. They will also study an annual report on the state of competition in cross-border markets and measures to prevent violations of competition rules there,” the EEC representative noted.

The agenda of the EEC Council meeting included the discussion of an action plan to develop electronic paperwork at sea checkpoints of the EAEU states in 2023-2025, monitoring of the assessment of the regulatory impact of the EEC draft decisions in 2022 and other topics.
