RASMEX DIRECTORS MODERATE INTERNATIONAL ROUND TABLE ON EXPORT SUPPORT
The round table was held within the annual business forum “The Eurasian Economic Union: Armenia – Cooperation” in Armenian city Tsakhkadzor on June 03, 2018.
Co-moderators of the round table also were Wage Danielyan (State Food Security Service, Armenian Ministry of Agriculture) and Alexandr Fedorchuk (Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry).
The discussion centered on various aspects of export support policy in the EAEU states and possible ways to improve it. The round table participants raised the issues afflicted exporters at most, namely problems with product conformity assessment, the EAEU technical regulations, indirect taxes, product labelling and state recovery of transportation expenses.
Deputy Director of the Association of Small and Medium-sized Exporters Evgenia Shchipkova introduced Association’s proposals on export support modernization to the audience. These proposals were prepared by RASMEX on the request of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation in order to update the state export support strategy.
In the course of the meeting participants designated certain steps for the improvement of the today’s export support situation. First of all, these steps implied modifications of the state policy regarding the certification and conformity assessment in the EAEU and the state recovery of exporter’s transportation expenses as well.
