The parties agreed that they would discuss this issue at the meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council.

«This year Russia presides in the Eurasian Union. And of course, the digital agenda will become an indispensable condition, the cross-cutting issue of our interaction. We will develop it everywhere. One who will offer a reliable, easy and transparent regulatory regime, will win the race, this is obvious.
