Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission Tigran Sargsyan had a meeting today with the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev.
Issues related to the current development of the Eurasian Economic Union, deepening of economic relations with third countries and the common strategy of the EEU member states on the global market were discussed.
Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that Tigran Sargsyan has assumed the presidency of the Board at a hard time for world economy and added that “it’s difficult to find ways of growth under these conditions.”
The President said, however, he has no doubts connected with the ultimate usefulness of the Union, especially considering that a number of countries are willing to join EEU or create free trade zones.
The President of Kazakhstan noted that the membership in the integration union envisages not only the use of opportunities, but also the need to invest in its development.
Chairman of the EEU Board voiced confidence that Kazakhstan would give a new impulse to the development of the Union during its presidency of the EEU.
