Opening remarks by Mikhail Mishustin at a meeting on the current economic situation

Mikhail Mishustin: Good afternoon, dear colleagues!

ended today working visit to Kazakhstan to participate in the meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council.

First of all, we discussed in detail the topical issues of Eurasian integration. We agreed to increase cooperation in the industrial sector. We are accelerating the implementation of a traceability mechanism for goods imported into the EAEU. This is necessary to effectively combat gray imports and illegal circulation of products. And in order to expand sales markets for agricultural producers of all member states of the union, we will intensify work on the Eurasian Agroexpress joint logistics project. Our products will be delivered faster to Europe and Asia at competitive rates.

On the sidelines of the intergovernmental council, bilateral meetings were held with colleagues from Kazakhstan, Belarus and Kyrgyzstan. Each of them was dedicated to solving problems in the trade and economic sphere, launching new projects with a high integration component.
