Belarus President signs package of documents to advance Eurasian integration

    Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko has signed a package of documents relating to the advancement of Eurasian integration.

    The package includes the treaty on the Customs Code of the Eurasian Economic Union. The document is aimed at advancing integration processes and increasing volumes of trade between the Eurasian Economic Union and the rest of the world.

    The signed documents also deal with foreign policy, including the launch of negotiations on free trade with Iran, India, Singapore, and Egypt. Apart from that, the documents take care of unified customs regulations in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), coordination of the transport policy, digital agenda, common financial and electricity markets, and trade in services.

    The adoption of the package of documents will allow the Republic of Belarus to systemically argue in favor of its approaches to handling problematic aspects of operation of the Eurasian Economic Union.
