Askar Mamin: Priorities of Kazakhstan's chairmanship in EAEU take into account challenges and opportunities in the new conditions

Friday, 05 February 2021, 15:57:35

Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Askar Mamin took part in a meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council, where he called for strengthening the work in the priority areas announced by Kazakhstan for its chairmanship in the EAEU in 2021.

The meeting was also attended by the Prime Ministers of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan, Belarus — Roman Golovchenko, Kyrgyzstan — Ulukbek Maripov, Russia — Mikhail Mishustin, Uzbekistan — Abdulla Aripov, acting Prime Minister of Moldova Aureliu Ciocoi (online), Chair of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission Mikhail Myasnikovich, Chair of the Executive Committee - CIS Executive Secretary Sergei Lebedev, Chair of the Board of the Eurasian Development Bank Nikolay Podguzov and Cuban Ambassador to Russia Julio Antonio Garmendia Pena, who broadcast a video message from the prime minister of his country, Cruz Manuel Marrero.

“The President of Kazakhstan Kassym-Jomart Kemelevich Tokayev sent an appeal to the heads of the member states of the union, which outlined the main priorities in the year of our country's chairmanship. They are formulated taking into account the 6-year experience of the EAEU existence and the most pressing challenges and opportunities in the new economic and social reality,” Mamin said.

The head of government noted that Kazakhstan, as chair of the EAEU bodies, will focus on giving a new impetus to industrial cooperation, eliminating barriers in mutual trade, fully using the potential of cross-border transport arteries and logistics hubs, comprehensive digitalization and expanding access to foreign markets.

“The trends formed and intensified during the current crisis, including the displacement and destruction of production and transport chains that have been formed for decades, an increased focus on widespread digitalization, and increased competition for capital and sales markets, are not short-term. They will form conditions in global markets for many years to come and will become part of the framework of a new economic reality,” Mamin said.

The prime minister emphasized that the areas of work proposed by the Republic of Kazakhstan are fully consistent with the common interests of the EAEU countries and reflect the need for an accelerated transformation of the economic, production, trade, and institutional structure of the EAEU in the new conditions.

During the meeting, a number of issues were considered aimed at strengthening the legal framework of the Eurasian Economic Union. The EEC heard information on the macroeconomic situation in the EAEU countries, where proposals for ensuring their sustainable economic development were presented.

Issues of internal and external trade policy of the EAEU were discussed, including the improvement of mechanisms for the application of special protective, anti-dumping and countervailing measures, updating the lists of countries-users of the unified system of tariff preferences of the EAEU.

The Concept for the development of electronic document management at sea checkpoints of the EAEU countries with an Action Plan for 2021-2022, the Procedure for the coordination and analytical support of selection and breeding work in animal husbandry of the EAEU member states were approved.

At a press conference following the meeting, the prime minister of Kazakhstan said that the Eurasian Economic Commission had approved an Action Plan for the implementation of Kazakhstan's initiatives, which identified 15 main tasks and 84 events. 57 events are planned for the current year (2022-2025 — 27).
