Removing barriers within EAEU will be among priorities of Belarus  Chairmanship in EEC

ArmInfo. Removing barriers within the Eurasian Economic Union will be among the priorities of the Belarusian Chairmanship of the Eurasian Economic Commission.   This was announced on September 18 at the opening of the forum "Young  Leaders of Eurasia: EAEU - Success Stories" by the head of the Main  Directorate for Economic Integration of the Ministry of Economy of  Belarus Aleksey Matsevilo.

Recalling that next year Armenia will transfer the chairmanship to  the EEC of Belarus, he emphasized that the country's president,  Alexander Lukashenko, will present the priorities of the republic for  the next 4 years.

"But I, a an expert, will talk about some of the priority areas of  our activity. Belarus will direct its efforts to removing obstacles  within the union that arise faster than we manage to remove. Only in  August of this year 7 new barriers arose, and we manage to remove 2-  3 per month. There is a negative balance, and this is more likely due  to the fact that we are already fighting the consequences, not the  causes, "said Matsevilo, adding that trade protectionism is one of  those evils that create new barriers.

According to the Belarusian official, in this matter it is necessary  to be guided not by short-term interests, but by long-term ones,  since in a fleeting world, priorities change quickly. As an important  condition for successful advancement, Matsevilo emphasized the  importance of eliminating protectionism, developing a common national  industry, and creating a common energy market. "Only a common vision  of the future can ensure the successful development of an integration  union, and until this happens, it is difficult to move anywhere," he  said.

The representative of the Ministry of Economy of Belarus also pointed  out the importance of studying and presenting the mentality of each  member of the union when presenting a proposal or law in order to  eliminate awkward situations or disagreements within the union.

Matsevilo also recalled that all decisions in the EAEU are taken by  consensus, and the decision to join a new state in a single trade  zone, the voice of each member of the union is decisive, which  strengthens the national sovereignty of the member states of the  union. "Today, there are a lot of people who want to join the EAEU  trade zone, more than 30 countries have expressed a desire, but if  one of the countries is against it, this will not happen. This  increases the sovereignty of each of the countries members of the  intellectual union," he noted.

In turn, Viktor Nazarenko, Minister of the EEC Technical Regulation  Collegium, stated that after gaining independence, each country  sought to trade with the whole world, but did not allow anyone to let  itself in.  "But as it turned out, it did not work out quickly to get  rich due to many problems and the need to interact with partners,"  Nazarenko stated, recalling that the proposal was made by the then  president to create a platform that would allow both preservation of  sovereignty and economic development for the first time 25 years ago  Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev.

According to him, a long enough time has passed for the realization  of the need to create such an integration project, to develop its  structure. "And, in the end, first 3, and then 5 countries decided to  build a common competitive economic platform - this is a grandiose  project, which this year is already celebrating its 5th anniversary.  Today, the EAEU has a clear view of interaction with the outside  world, inside the project Customs duties have been lifted, goods have  been unhindered. In addition to customs regulations, there are also  technical ones - a rather hot direction, 48 technical regulations  have already been adopted, and 25 documents are ahead, <Nazarenko  said, adding that the Union works according to international  standards, which greatly simplifies interaction with third countries

He also spoke about the implementation of the digital economy and the  digitalization of processes and procedures in the EAEU, which,  according to him, is a complex process. At the end of his speech, he  pointed out the importance of holding such events, as the young  leaders of Eurasia will continue the path they have begun, and  serious responsibility will be assigned to them.

The forum "Young Leaders of Eurasia" is organized by the North-South  Political Science Center.
