MINSK, March 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Heads of state customs services of the three Customs Union member countries, or Russia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan, will meet in the Belarusian city of Vitebsk on Thursday to analyze the results of the use of the Customs Unions laws and to outline prospect for further cooperation, the press service of the Belarusian State Customs Committee reported.
According to the press service, heads of customs authorities from Kyrgyzstan and Ukraine have been invited to take part.
One of the issues on the meeting’s agenda is the simplification of customs formalities for air transport passengers making transit stopovers at airports within the Customs Union. Such passengers might be allowed to declare their luggage as transfer luggage provided it contains nothing that is subject to written declaration.
It is also planned that head of Russian and Belarusian customs authorities will hold a bilateral meeting in Vitebsk to discuss amendments to an agreement on the payment of export customs duties for exporting crude oil and a number of oil products from Belarus outside the Customs Union.
Apart from that, it is also planned to hold a three-party meeting of heads of customs services of Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine to discuss cooperation during the European Football Cup in 2012.
