MINSK, 19 May (BelTA) – Moldova President Igor Dodon suggested looking into mechanisms and instruments to involve the EAEU observer states in the implementation of the EAEU joint programs and projects as he took part in the session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, BelTA has learned.

“We see that more and more countries want to join this new and promising integration project within the CIS,” Igor Dodon said. He pointed out that Moldova obtained the observer status in the EAEU two years ago and has successfully used it since then. Moldova would like to step up its participation in the EAEU projects and programs. In view of this, the Moldovan president proposed to create a mechanism of greater involvement of the observer states.

“We are intent on advancing our interaction with the Eurasian Economic Union and extending the cooperation agenda. I am speaking about Moldova's participation in a number of joint programs and projects of the EAEU member states. We are particularly interested in projects in agribusiness and food security of the EAEU states,” Igor Dodon noted.

According to him, Moldova is ready to participate in agribusiness projects that envisage not only direct supplies of products but also setting up joint enterprises and developing production chains.

Moldova's avid interest in cooperation with the EAEU is explained by the attractiveness of the EAEU economic agenda and free movement of goods, services, capitals, and workforce in the union.
