ArmInfo. The volumes of counterfeiting and smuggling continue to amount to billions of dollars, significantly limiting the opportunities for developing fair business of our countries. This was stated by the Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Denis Manturov during the opening of the second International Forum of Eurasian Partnership on October 6 in Yerevan.
According to him, as a systematic solution to this problem, widespread introduction of marking of goods produced or imported into the territory of the Union is seen. "The first such pilot project on fur products by the countries of the Union has already been successfully implemented," Manturov said. To translate this experience into other commodity groups, a draft of the relevant Agreement has been prepared and approved by the Council of EEC.
"We expect that after it is signed by all states, we will be able to promptly begin construction of a system of end-to-end traceability of goods in the perimeter of the borders of the EEU," he said.
According to the minister, only the coordinated actions of our states on the whole range of issues on the integration agenda will allow the synchronization of the industry of the countries of the Union. "I am convinced that the pace of interaction we have accumulated will ultimately lead to the emergence of new national champions within the EEU capable of crowding the world's technological leaders in global markets," concluded Denis Manturov, and the Second International Forum of Eurasian Partnership (IEPF) will be held on October 5-7, 2017 in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia, the International Forum of the Eurasian Partnership will contribute to bilateral and multilateral economic cooperation and the implementation of meaningful and multifaceted business operations I'm waiting for the governments and business communities of the EEMP member countries, the CIS, the five BRICS members (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa), the United States and other countries.The forum will focus on identifying effective solutions that stimulate regional economic consolidation and the development of open innovation, The organizers of the forum are the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development of the Republic of Armenia and the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.
