On Wednesday, November 16, Moscow is hosting a meeting of the prime ministers of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) member states to discuss the draft version of the Customs Code of the EEU, which is supposed to be signed in Dec. 2016, reports Russian Cabinet of Ministers.

“There will be also discussed issues connected to the regulation of the single market of pharmaceuticals and medical devices [devices for medical purposes and medical equipment] of the Union”, the statement reads.

Las month, October 27, Prime Ministers of Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia held a meeting in Minsk, where they failed to agree on the new Customs Code, which is aiming to standardize customs clearance at the external border of the Union. Therefore, they decided to have another meeting in mid-November in Moscow hoping to decide on remaining issues.

According to the Prime Minister of Kazakhstan Bakytzha Sagintayev, the heads of government “agreed on four issues in the framework of the preparation of the draft [Treaty on the Customs Code of the EEU]; a decision on one was postponed for later; while five issues remain yet to be agreed upon.”
