Intergovernmental Commission to Discuss Indonesia’s EEU Participation
The meeting of the intergovernmental commission will be co-chaired by Russia’s Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov and Indonesia’s Coordinating Economic Minister Darmin Nasution. “The agenda of the intergovernmental commission meeting includes a number of important economic, trade and investment issues, including the possibility of Indonesia’s participation in the EEU. Jakarta is strongly interested in joining this union, as it is an important potential market,” Supriyadi told RIA Novosti in an interview published on Monday.
The EEU comprises Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia. The bloc aims to facilitate a greater economic integration between its member states, including a streamlined flow of goods, services, capital and labor.
