10/30/2020

On October 30, the Eurasian Economic Commission’s Council approved draft decision of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on granting the Republic of Cuba the Observer State status at the Eurasian Economic Union. The final decision will be adopted by the Union’s Heads of State.

The EEC Council has approved draft decisions of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on amending the list of sectors (subsectors) of services whereby the single market of services operates within the EAEU and on implementing Article 1.3 of the Interim Agreement leading to the formation of a free trade area between the Eurasian Economic Union and Iran.

 Furthermore, draft dispositions and decisions of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council were considered. In particular, the action plan required to ensure functioning of the single market for construction services within the EAEU.

The EEC Council has set the deadline for implementing the pilot project on forming the information system about goods that fail to confirm to requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union's technical regulations – July 1, 2021. 

 Amendments were also made to the List of quarantineable products subject to phytosanitary quarantine control (supervision) at the customs border of the Eurasian Economic Union and the EAEU customs territory.

 The Council’s members have discussed individual issues of Strategic Directions for Developing the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025 which require further study. Earlier, the Kyrgyz Republic submitted additional proposals to the draft Strategic Directions for Developing the Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025 on establishing a new EAEU Development Institution as well as on implementing mechanisms and programs for special-purpose financing to develop catching-up economies of the EAEU regions within active development institutions.

Some issues related to the EAEU foreign economic activities were considered and the progress of work on removing barriers in the Union's internal market was presented.  Amendments were made to the "road map" for developing a common system for customs transit of goods in the EAEU based on a system for monitoring transit traffic of goods using navigation seals.
