Belarus, Russia fulfill half of integration programs - PM Golovchenko

MINSK. Aug 26 (Interfax) - Belarus and Russia have fulfilled practically half of economic integration programs of the Union State, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said.

"We have started with discussing progress in the implementation of the union programs. We are moving at a good pace and fulfilling our obligations. Nearly 50% of 900+ tasks have been accomplished. Almost every deadline has been met," the Belarusian state-run news agency BelTA quoted Golovchenko as saying after a meeting with Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin in Cholpon-Ata, Kyrgyzstan, on the sidelines of a session of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) Intergovernmental Council.

"Some programs have been rescheduled due to the vast amount of work, especially in the case of digital platforms that have taken us more time to develop," Golovchenko said.

The presidents of Belarus and Russia approved a package of economic integration programs in November 2021.
