EAEU & Egypt May Sign Free Trade Agreement This Year, Official Says
"I think that we will still have time to do this this year in order to sign an agreement on a free trade zone with Egypt. This is very important for our enterprises, which will have a sufficiently preferential regime to enter the market. The import duty will be updated for about half of Belarusian goods in general. This is a very good support for the Belarusian economy," Myasnikovich, who is from Belarus, stated.
"The main reason that international investors should take note is that it [EAEU] offers access to nearly all of Central Asia as well as Russia, and that it has a lengthy queue of other nations wishing to sign agreements with it," Devonshire-Ellis outlined. "It has nowhere near reached its full potential: investors should be looking to get a foothold, adapt, learn and progress before the competition for EAEU market share starts to arrive."
