Trade volume of the EEU with China can reach $100 billion in the near future, member of the board of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Sergei Sidorsky said today at the 10th International Conference "Eurasian Economic Integration."
According to him, for the implementation of joint projects the EEU countries should actively work to attract resources from the Asian Bank of Infrastructure Investments. The main player here is China.
"We can reach a volume of trade with China in amount of $100 billion. Even so, we won't become China's most important trading partner. It is necessary to change the situation. After all, China notes that the strengthening of cooperation with the Eurasian Economic Union is a priority for it. We must also move in this direction. We're taking steps in this direction. For example, at the last meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council it was decided to integrate the EEU with the Economic Zone of the Silk Road (integration project proposed by Beijing - note of 24.kg news agency)," Sergei Sidorsky said.
