MOSCOW, 24 May (BelTA) – The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member states need to leave their comfort zone in order to further integration, Belarus' Deputy Prime Minister Igor Petrishenko said as he spoke at one of the key sessions of the 2nd Eurasian Economic Forum, EAEU Priorities 2030+, in Moscow on 24 May, BelTA has learned.

“We must admit that the Strategy 2025 [the Eurasian economic integration development strategy until 2025] is a fundamental document. Over the remaining period of time, we should make every effort to implement it fully and properly. But let's be frank: it contains many convenient, compromise measures, and individual countries and sometimes all member states did not want to go beyond them. Yet, in order to achieve progress and new goals by 2030, 2040 all of us need to get out of integration comfort zone that we got so used to,” said Igor Petrishenko.

He invited the participants of the forum to discuss plans to promote integration, avenues of integration and criteria to assess progress in integration.
