ArmInfo. The Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) adopted a recommendation aimed at developing cooperation between the states of the Eurasian Economic Union in the copper industry.
As stated on the EEC website, the recommendation identifies promising areas of industrial cooperation in the production of copper products, taking into account the specialization and potential of the EAEU countries - from the collection and processing of copper scrap to the production of copper wire. The document also includes an open list of producers and consumers of the EAEU in each area of cooperation.
"Stable cooperative ties have been formed in the EAEU between mining and processing enterprises of the copper industry. It is necessary to create conditions for their further development in a changing environment", said Artak Kamalyan, Minister for Industry and Agro-Industrial Complex of the EEC.
According to him, in order to reduce environmental damage, introduce advanced technologies for the development of new copper deposits, taking into account the reduction in the developed raw material base of the Union, it is planned to exchange experience in modernizing copper mining and processing enterprises. In addition, it is also planned to increase the efficiency of cooperation between countries in the production of high value-added copper products.
"The implementation of the recommendation will help create a closed production cycle in the Union - from the collection of copper ore to the production of finished products for sale to consumers in related industries, and will also provide an opportunity to work on the climate agenda," Artak Kamalyan summed up.
According to the source, the document was prepared as part of the implementation of the Main Directions for Industrial Cooperation in the EAEU until 2025.
