Bishkek, April 14 / Kabar /. President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko supported the proposal of President Almazbek Atambayev on the need to dedicate 2017 to business development in the Eurasian economic space. The Belarus leader expressed his position during the expanded meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council in Bishkek.
Lukashenko believes that this year must be made a turning point in the establishment of the EEU.
"Among the priority measures is to introduce a moratorium on the adoption of new legal acts that discriminate participants of the EEU. The Eurasian Intergovernmental Council and the Eurasian Economic Commission need to devote more attention to removing exemptions, barriers and restrictions on the EEU domestic market. Although we place major emphasis on improving the relations within the union, we also remember about expanding the boundaries. In this regard, I can say frankly that signing preferential agreements on free trade is in the interests of Belarus. I am confident that it also meets the interests of the other states,” he said.
