To note, the day before the Minister of Transport, Communication and Information Technologies of Armenia Vahan Martirosyan and the Minister of Transport and Communications of Belarus Anatoly Sivak signed the Protocol on Amendments and Additions to the Agreement on International Road Transport dated September 20, 1997 between the Government of the Republic of Belarus and the Government of the Republic of Armenia. The agreement regulates the mechanisms for the implementation of interstate passenger / cargo transportation between the two countries. The need to introduce changes in it arose after Armenia joined the EEU. As a result of the implementation and signing of the Protocol, both participating states are exempted from road charges and compulsory authorization to enter, exit, transit when carrying out state transportation to the third country and from the third country through the territory of the member states of the EEU. This will lead to a simplification of the process of international cargo transportation between the two countries, a reduction in time and costs during the transportation of goods, as well as an increase in turnover. During the meeting of the ministers, issues of development and expansion of cooperation in the field of road transport were also discussed.
