YEKATERINBURG, November 10 (Itar-Tass) - Kazakhstan will open access to its system of state purchases for Russian and Belarusian companies at the beginning of 2014, as is envisaged by the membership in the Customs Union of the three countries.
“This is an example of positive cooperation between the countries,” Sabra Yesimbekov, the President of Kazakhstan’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said on Sunday at a plenary meeting of the Business Council on Border Cooperation.
At the same time, he admitted that Russia and Kazakhstan has “different visions in various spheres.” Thus, the two states have different approaches to issues of regulating alcohol and pharmaceuticals markets.
Meanwhile, minister counselor of the Kazakh embassy in Russia Viktor Temirbayev noted that any trade wars could be avoided thanks to cooperation between industries of the two countries.
“It is possible to cement the process of integration of the two countries’ economies only by means of developing large- and medium-scale joint projects,” he said.
