The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC, Commission) discussed a list of measures to develop cooperation with the World Customs Organization (WCO).
The meeting of the EEC profile Working Group was attended by representatives of the Customs Cooperation Bloc of the Commission and the authorized bodies of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) countries, whose competence is the development of customs cooperation, as well as the improvement of customs regulation in cooperation with the international customs community. The experts of the Working Group considered legal and organizational approaches for the implementation of paragraph 11.7.5 of the Strategic Directions for the Development of Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025 in terms of interaction with the WCO.
