Shavkat Mirziyoyev confirms Uzbekistan’s readiness to mutually eliminate barriers and restrictions in trade with EAEU countries


President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev attended the anniversary meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on May 8.

The head of state said that Uzbekistan is interested in expanding practical partnerships and participating in the implementation of multilateral industry cooperation projects within the framework of the EAEU development.

“We propose to prepare a new comprehensive plan for joint activities of the government of Uzbekistan and the Eurasian Economic Commission for the medium term,” the President said.

Mirziyoyev confirmed the country’s readiness to mutually eliminate barriers and restrictions in trade with the EAEU countries. The procedure for Uzbekistan to join the 2009 Rules for Determining the Country of Origin of Goods has been launched.

“We can organize digital exchange of data on goods and vehicles moving across our customs borders, integrate information systems for sanitary, phytosanitary and veterinary control, adopt a Plan for the convergence of technical regulation measures and use electronic certification,” the President noted.

Shavkat Mirziyoyev called important continuing close dialogue on the development of the North-South transport corridor towards the markets of South and Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

“We welcome the fruitful results of the first meeting of transport ministers on the development of the multimodal route Belarus – Russia – Kazakhstan – Uzbekistan – Afghanistan – Pakistan, held in Termez at the end of April. In order to simplify transit procedures between our countries, we advocate the development of a set of measures for digital interaction with the EAEU common system for customs transit,” the head of state added.

The President of Uzbekistan expressed intention to actively support industrial cooperation projects and localization programs for the production of in-demand products.

“I propose to develop a separate road map in this direction, providing for new capacities in industrial zones and technology parks jointly created in the regions of our countries. Issues of broad involvement of business in such projects can be considered during the first meeting of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Uzbekistan and the EAEU Business Council, which will be held this year in Samarkand,” Mirziyoyev stated.

He noted the importance of systematic work and cooperation with the bodies of the Eurasian Economic Union in the development of the Eurasian Agroexpress, the introduction of “green” and water-saving technologies, the creation of joint agro-industrial clusters and logistics centers, the development of common approaches and close cooperation in overcoming consequences of climate change.
