A committee led by Prime Minister Tigran Sargsyan was formed to coordinate activities for Armenia’s accession to the Customs Union, Haykakan Zhamanak daily said quoting Deputy Economy Minister.
“The committee will focus on the discussion of issues to be agreed with the Customs Union members,” Karine Minasyan said.
As Zhoghovurd daily reported earlier, citing own sources, upon return from Sochi, President Serzh Sargsyan instructed to form a group of economy experts and businessmen to assess economic risks for Armenia in case of accession to the CU.
The group headed by the president of the Union of Manufacturers and Businessmen (Employers) of Armenia Arsen Ghazaryan will travel to Moscow September 25 to discuss usage of mechanisms of the common customs zone with the board chair of the Eurasian Economic Commission.
“Considering the urgency the group was formed with, it’s probable that Russia is in a hurry to complete Armenia’s accession to the Customs Union,” the daily said.
