ST. PETERSBURG, June 20 (Itar-Tass) - Results of Eurasian integration processes will not be seen immediately, it is a long process, Viktor Khristenko, the head of the Eurasian Economic Commission board, said on Thursday.
Speaking at round-table discussions within the framework of the Petersburg International Economic Forum, he reminded the audience that active work in that direction - the setting up of the Customs Union and the Common Economic Space of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, has been maintained only in the past few years.
The task to form the foundations of the Eurasian Economic Union must be settled on the whole “within a tight timeframe” - by the year 2015, he said.
“Of course one cannot expect results from the implementation of these measures right away - this is a big and long systemic project,” Khristenko stressed.
