MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) —— The Eurasian Economic Community, which is being formedmainly on a competitive basis, will be staffed within two months, Viktor Khristenko, chairman of the Commission’s Board, said.
“I am convinced that we will be able to get key personnel in place within two months,” Khristenko said at a summit of the Eurasian Economic Community (EurAsEC) on Monday, March 19.
He said the process is going in accordance with the quotas approved by the member states: 6 percent from Belarus, 10 percent from Kazakhstan and 84 percent from Russia.
“All appointments are made on a competitive basis. There are about 350 vacancies to compete for. The odds are one to three,” he said.
The Eurasian Economic Community’s Board meets weekly to solve mainly organisational questions.
So far three advisory commissions have been set up: on trade policy, on tax policy, and on administration, technical regulations, sanitary and phytosanitary measures. Also, eight department directors have been appointed.
“The Commission is registered as a legal entity and work is underway to find the building where it will work,” Khristenko said.
