Meeting of EEC Council to take place in Bishkek on January 22

First Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of Kyrgyzstan Arzybek Kozhoshev took part in a regular meeting of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) held in format of a videoconference. Press service of the Cabinet reported.

Issues related to trade, agro-industrial complex, international cooperation and information integrated system have been considered.

The EEC Council approved the draft agreement on the rules for the issue, circulation and redemption within the EAEU of warehouse receipts for agricultural products. This contributes to the development of e-commerce, exports, the availability of loans for agricultural producers, sale of goods taking into account market conditions, development of wholesale distribution centers and market transparency.

Information was heard on the advisability of forming a Council of Heads of authorized bodies in the energy sector. Based on the results of the consideration, it was instructed to ensure the preparation and submission to the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council of a draft decision on the establishment of the Council of Heads by May 1, 2022.

The issue was initiated by Kyrgyzstan back in April 2020.

The main tasks of the Council are to ensure long-term and mutually beneficial cooperation in the field of energy, to promote the implementation of a coordinated energy policy and the phased formation of common markets of energy resources within the EAEU.

A decision was made to extend temporary measures for the certification of mass-produced products amid the unfavorable epidemiological situation associated with the spread of coronavirus until January 10, 2023.

Amendments to the agreement on common principles and rules for the circulation of medical devices and equipment within the Eurasian Economic Union dated December 23, 2014 were approved.

According to it, from January 1, 2022, registration and examination of medical devices are carried out only in accordance with the requirements of the EAEU.

The next meeting of the EEC Council will be held on January 21, 2022 under the chairmanship of Kyrgyzstan.
