A detailed exchange of views on the key issues of today's agenda was held in the narrow structure, Prime Minister of Armenia Karen Karapetyan stated at the opening of the meeting of the EAEU intergovernmental council in an expanded format. The Prime Minister presented the most pressing questions for the Union.
Today, according to Karen Karpetyan, it is almost impossible to talk about modernization and increasing the competitiveness of economies without a digital agenda.

The resolution of this issue is important both from the point of view of implementing a number of initiatives, and in terms of traceability of goods.

According to him, it is proceeding in line with the development of the relevant provisions of the agreement, regarding the transport infrastructure. "For us, the issues of logistics and transport communication direction, in the absence of common borders with the EAP countries, are more than relevant, we expect that the implementation of the road map will contribute to the diversification of transport communications between our states," Karapetyan said. As part of the formation of the common electricity market of the Union, the Prime Minister expressed interest in entering into such an information exchange system that would correspond to the task of increasing mutual electricity trade, would be consistent with the planning of parallel operation modes for the electric power systems of the EAEU countries.
