Dear Heads of Government,

I am sincerely happy to welcome you to the capital of Armenia, where we traditionally hold the autumn session of the Eurasian Intergovernmental Council.

I have to say with pain that the world economy is going through difficult times. many trade, industrial and logistics links that were just beginning to recover from the pandemic are now experiencing new shocks. The fundamental principles of the global economic system have also come into question.

In the conditions of the current unstable economic realities, there is no doubt about the relevance and demand for regular reliable dialogue at the highest level for more harmonious and coordinated interaction.

Understanding of mutual interests, willingness for compromise and cooperation can become the key to solving many issues. In this context, I would like to mention the daily work in the literal sense of the word, carried out at all levels within the EAEU framework, in the direction of developing coordinated measures to respond to emerging problems.

Before passing the floor to the Chairman of the Intergovernmental Council Akylbek Japarov, let me express my gratitude to the Kyrgyz side both for the presidency and for the efforts made in developing today’s rich agenda, which covers a wide range of topical issues of Eurasian integration.

I wish everyone productive work and constructive discussions.

Thanks for attention”.
