The meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) will be held next week in Astana, said Kazakhstan’s Prime Minister Karim Massimov.
He made the remarks May 25 at the opening of the Silk Road countries’ forum, which was held within the Astana Economic Forum 2016, said the prime minister’s website.
Massimov said that the EAEU development concept and approaches to the implementation of the “One Belt, One Road” program will be submitted for the final approval during the meeting.
“I think that the “One Belt, One Road” program is becoming one of the largest in the 21st century,” said the prime minister.
“It connects and unites almost three-quarters of the world’s population, creates a completely different system of interaction and cooperation, which will facilitate the creation of new forms of cross-border exchange, investment and business cooperation, thus, the diversification of our economies,” said Massimov.
The Eurasian Economic Union is an international organization for regional economic integration. It was established in 2015 by the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union. Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia are members of the organization.
