EAEU to separate administration of Internet commerce

Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) plans to draw a distinction between the administration of Internet commerce for individuals and businesses. The Minister in charge of Customs Cooperation of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Maksat Mamytkanov told during a video conference.

According to him, during the coronavirus pandemic, both private individuals and businesses began to receive goods through the Internet sites to increase the trade turnover. The EEC is preparing for the amendments to the EAEU legislation to administer such purchases in terms of control over the collection of payments separately.

«We need to ensure Internet commerce in the form that is accepted all over the world. It should be understood that there are goods for citizens and goods for internal trade. Our project is aimed at an examination, a pilot project, to identify flaws and shortcomings in the system. The main point is that Internet commerce should increase opportunities for citizens,» Maksat Mamytkanov said.
