DESTINATION kazakhstan Kazakhstan and Eurasian Economic Union Regional integration is a dominant trend in the global economy for today as it promotes economic growth of the states. In his interview for World Monitor Magazine, Mr. Timur Suleimenov, EEC Board Member, Minister of Economy and Financial Policy, is talking about the Eurasian Economic Union development and its future for Kazakhstan. Timur Muratovich, could you please outline the contours of the Eurasian Economic Union? What should Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus expect in the near future? The 2008 – 2009 global financial and economic crisis demonstrated that it is impossible to solve the problems alone. The foundation of the Customs Union between Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan in 2010, launching the project for the Common Economic Space (CES) of the three countries in 2012 are the priority trends of the postSoviet integration process, as well as the foundation of the Eurasian Economic Union by 2015. In March, 2014, we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Eurasian Integration Project. in his speech for the academic community in M. Lomonossov MSU on 29 March 1994, Nursultan Nazarbayev, the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, offered his idea of development of integration cooperation between the CIS countries, as well as the foundation of the Eurasian Union in the future. For today, we understand the strategic value of this project, which helped to solve many problems the countries faced due to the dissolution of the single union state. At the end of 2011, the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council approved international treaties to found CES. As a foundation for the establishment of the Eurasian Economic Union by 1 January 2015, the agreements made shall be implemented by member states; it refers to conducting well-balanced macroeconomic, budget and competitive policies, structural reforms in the labour market as well as the capital market, commodity market, service market, and development of single rules in the area of power economy, transport and telecommunications. For today, our countries have actually provided absolute freedom for commodity movement. However, the issues of sensitive item sales (oil, gas, refined products, drugs, medical goods, alcohol, and tobacco products) remain unsettled; they will be discussed within the Eurasian Economic Union Agreement and relevant industrial agreements to be developed. Formation of the common financial market will support development of investment cooperation between CU and CES members. Removal of mutual barriers for financial services, formation of the single capital market will enable us to ensure efficient allocation of capital, diversify risks, increase competition in the market of financial services, improve their quality and reduce the cost of lending resources for the economy. As for tax policies, our countries have developed and put into operation efficient procedures for indirect taxation in mutual commerce. The grounds to coordinate excise policies are established. In the area of labour migration, we have made such agreements so that the residents of member countries have the right to engage in labour activities in any other state, which is a member of the Eurasian Economic Union Agreement. Timur Suleimenov, Member of the Board, Minister of Economy and Financial Policy, Eurasian Economic Commission 12 world monitor
