«It is advisable to take a number of decisions to prevent destabilization of the EAEU’s internal market due to introduction of unilateral bans and restrictions by our countries,» Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), said at a video conference.
According to the EEC press service, development of measures to combat coronavirus has become the main topic of the agenda of the extraordinary meeting of the Commission’s Council. Given the difficult epidemiological situation in all countries, it was held in a video conference format.
Mikhail Myasnikovich noted that «there has been no stabilization of coronavirus incidence in the countries of the union so far. There are problems in the work of production and monetary sectors.» He stressed that the state bodies of the EAEU countries make systemic and operational decisions. The EEC Board monitors the situation, sent a review of the necessary measures to the Union countries, made certain recommendations.
«It is advisable to make a number of decisions in order to prevent destabilization on the domestic market. The relevant documents were adopted by the EEC Board and sent to the members of the Council. This is a necessary measure, which is in the legal field of the Eurasian Economic Union. In particular, restrictions are proposed on the export of certain goods outside the EAEU that are urgently needed by citizens of its member countries on the domestic market. It is planned to provide some benefits for the import of socially significant consumer goods. Today, the union is being tested for strength. Decisions must be consistent. It cannot be otherwise,» Mikhail Myasnikovich stressed.
