Lukashenko emphasizes EAEU significance for sovereignty of its member states

MOSCOW, 8 May (BelTA) – The first ten years of the integration association have been quite successful, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the session of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Moscow on 8 May, BelTA has learned.

“We can state with confidence that the first ten years have been quite successful. We have almost reached the final stage of the Strategy 2025,” the head of state said.

According to him, the taken measures contributed to the increase in mutual trade of the EAEU member states. In late 2023 its growth amounted to almost 5%. In absolute figures this is about $90 billion. This achievement comes amid the continuing complicated situation in the world markets. 

“The main thing is that we have learned to hear each other better. Neither GDP growth nor an increase in real incomes would have been possible if we had stayed apart from each other. Not everyone of us would have been able to preserve its sovereignty. No doubt that a lot has been done,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.

The president added, however, that unresolved issues and challenges still remained in the integration construction.
