ASTANA, November 22. /ITAR-TASS/. The shortcomings in the work of the Customs Union (CU) and the Unified Economic Space (UES) are due to the incomplete integration process and will be eliminated in future, chairman of the Eurasian Economic Commission Viktor Khristenko said on Friday.
The negative news in the media referring to the work of the Customs Union “in most cases come not from integration but rather from incomplete integration,” he said during a seminar on the Eurasian economic union. He confirmed certain problems with channels to export capitals, with growing “grey” import in the CU territory, and with turnover of oil products.
“They result from still outstanding aspects of the integration process,” he said.
Khristenko also agreed with the view expressed by Kazakhstan’s head of the entrepreneurs’ chamber Ablay Myrzakhmetov that lack of regulations inside the CU may be also explained by lack of feedback from governments to views of the business community. “If we learned to hear (views of businesses), it would be easier to do many things,” Myrzakhmetov said.
