The parties celebrated the 25th anniversary of the idea of Eurasian integration put forward by the First President of the Republic of Kazakhstan Elbasy Nursultan Nazarbayev and the 5th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty on the Establishment of the Eurasian Economic Union.

“Currently, work is underway to implement the provisions of the Treaty on the EAEU on pressing issues of cooperation, to develop a draft strategic directions for the development of Eurasian economic integration until 2025,” Mamin said.

According to the prime minister of Kazakhstan, given the prevailing conditions in the global economy, in order to have a positive effect on the growth of the economies of the EAEU countries, special attention should be paid to the development of industrial cooperation. This direction should become one of the main economic tasks on the common agenda of the EAEU.

One of the effective tools for the development of entrepreneurship, employment and economic growth, may be a joint program for the development of the "economy of simple things."

“This sector can give an increase in gross product of up to 1.5% of GDP,” Mamin said and suggested developing a digital map of the distribution of industrial enterprises across the Union countries.

The need for the development of electronic trading platforms was also noted. The use of this promising global trend will contribute to the growth of both mutual trade and stimulate the export of goods to the markets of third countries.

The Kazakh prime minister noted the high potential of the EAEU for integration into the international transport network. Along with measures to simplify customs procedures for transit through the territory of the member countries, the EAEU Unified Transit System currently being developed as an effective tool.

The hub allows you to introduce and stimulate new products to the financial technology market.
