In general, despite all the challenges and the difficult international situation, the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) is developing well. Trade within the Union is growing at a steady pace, and this is one of the few positive nuances of our regional affairs. Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan said this at Thursday’s special meeting of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council, in Armenia.
"We are now focused on the implementation of the 2020-2025 development strategy, we are working on the draft of the Saint Petersburg Declaration. Many postulates in it are generally acceptable, but there are nuances that need to be further discussed.
"The main problem is that there are some nuances of further economic integration where the positions of the countries differ slightly. I believe there is an opportunity to find concrete solutions.
"There are many nuances related to the further development of the Eurasian Economic Union. The creation of a real single energy market is of fundamental importance. It is also important to coordinate the loan and financial policy of our governments, and we are working very closely in this direction.
"Our main goal is to develop the economies of our countries and increase the level of well-being of our citizens.
"We see some signals which indicate that other countries are also interested in the further development of relations with the Eurasian Economic Union," Pashinyan emphasized.
