Member of the board (minister) for trade of the Eurasian Economic Union Andrey Slepnev who headed negotiations with the Argentine colleagues told TASS previously that the sides “reached the general agreement on the need to start the preparation in the short run of a full-format legally binding agreement between the two unions that will form a new regulatory framework for trade between the MERCOSUR and EEU members.”
MERCOSUR (bringing together Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Paraguay and Uruguay) and EEU together account for more than 7% of the world economy with the total population exceeding 0.5 billion people.
The new integration alliance - EEU - will start functioning in January 1, 2015. The Union brings together Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan intends to join them in the near future.
