ST. PETERSBURG, June 15 (Itar-Tass) — Kazakhstan’s Prime Minister Karim Masimov has called on his Russian and Belarusian counterparts, Dmitry Medvedev and Mikhail Myasnikovich, to agree conditions to facilitate business activity throughout the territory of the Customs Union.
“We in Kazakhstan attach primary significance to the World Bank’s ease of doing business index,” he said on Friday at a business forum Common Economic Space: New Possibilities of Industrial Development. “Each party chooses its own methods, but, generally speaking, they are practically all the same. I think we should coordinate our efforts to harmonize conditions of the ease of doing business, to remove barriers.”
“Nobody would object it, and we could coordinate such conditions both at the governmental level and at the level of business associations in order to yield recommendations to governments and ministries concerned,” he noted.
Apart from that, the Kazakh prime minister called to revise the common customs code of the Customs Union. “Practice proves that there are a lot of blind points there. Maybe we should once again call a working group to look at it more closely,” Masimov added.
