Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Alexey Overchuk said that at one of the meetings of the EEC Council, the issue of extending the zero customs duty on the import of electric vehicles into the territory of the EAEU was raised. "As a result, a month ago we decided to extend it for another two years. But at the same time, we decided to show our partners from the EAEU countries the opportunities that are currently developing in the field of electric vehicle production in the Russian Federation. We believe that in the very near future we will be able to meet the demand for electric vehicles through our own production," Alexey Overchuk said.
The meeting participants also visited the "Armenia", "Belarus" and "Kazakhstan" exhibition pavilions at Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy of the EAEU countries.
A few days earlier the National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia extended the quota for duty-free import of electric vehicles into the country.
