At the same time, joint work will be carried out to comply with the requirements of the technical regulations of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), including the certification of Kyrgyz goods in Kazakhstan's certification bodies.
ASKAR MAMIN, FIRST DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER OF KAZAKHSTAN:
- The roadmap includes 50 measures, 16 of them are operational, 5 are short-term and 29 are systematic. These standards are aimed at the full adaptation of the Kyrgyz economy to the norms and requirements of the EAEU to ensure the access of Kyrgyz goods to the EAEU markets. After signing the Road Map, we will move on to new approaches to jointly ensure the measures of customs, taxation, veterinary, phytosanitary and sanitary-epidemiological control at the external borders of the EAEU, and provide export-import and transit supplies through the Kazakh-Kyrgyz border with the participation of representatives of the Eurasian Economic Commission.
