EAEU conference in Gomel: No trade barriers between member countries

There shouldn’t be any barriers between countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). That’s the main topic of the EAEU international conference held in Grodno. The business terms should be equal for all five member countries.

However, according to participants of the conference, the court heard at least 10 appeals in 2015. All of them were referred to the violation of common rules of competition.  

Due to the investigation, it was possible to reduce the cost of roaming on the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union.

Gomel Chemical Plant has balanced the pricing policy with Russia in the domestic and foreign markets. It got the right to trade in Russia and the "Mogilevliftmash". However, not everybody gets the promised dividends from the economic integration.

Vladimir Koltovich, Minister of Antitrust and Trade of the Republic of Belarus:
There are some problematic issues with the delivery of dairy products. The Grodno region states that they have several factories closed and they don’t have access to the Russian market.

Andrei Kashevarov, Deputy Head of the Federal Antitrust Service of Russia:
If we talk about the problematic fields that require discussion, it is firstly the pharmaceutical field, because the prices are high and this problem should be solved.
