At Friday’s Eurasian Intergovernmental Council meeting in Kyrgyzstan, Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan called for a return to the single methodology for allocating customs duties among the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU).
He pointed out that significant deviations in the distribution of customs duties have been observed in recent months, and due to the change in the structure of foreign trade in the EAEU.
“We believe it is necessary to return to the single department allocation methodology as soon as possible,” he said.
As for the creation of a single natural gas market in the EAEU, according to him, Armenia is ready for a constructive dialogue in this direction in order to reach consensus on the outstanding issues.
“In the perspective of having a complete market for goods and services, we consider integration in the areas of transport and infrastructure to be important. With the right approach to transport and logistics systems, the branch can become the one of the main engines of the development of the EAEU and a concrete benefit of the union, creating favorable organizational and economic conditions for transit transport,” the Prime Minister of Armenia added.
