Area attraction … the CU Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus plan to approach India, Chile, Italy

The Common Economic Space of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus remains the most stable in the world. In addition, interested, on the one hand, investment and new technologies, and on the other — in the public and their investment products to foreign markets. Potential partners of the Customs Union attracted by the fact that his economic policy is independent from the European Central Bank and the U.S. Federal Reserve. The participants of the vehicle, in turn, are interested in an equal partnership with all, who benefits from it.

For example, at the end of 2010 was created the Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce for Russia and Belarus (the working body of the Customs and Economic Union of Belgium and Luxembourg (BLEU). The spring of 2011 its chairman Wang Ryaykeforsel said that "in the BLEU interested in long term cooperation with the Customs Union. "And for the last two years of direct investment in Belgium with Luxembourg industrial and infrastructure facilities of Russia and Belarus increased by almost a third, and a counter-flow industrial (nesyrevogo!) exports gained 15 percent.

We note in this regard that the EU attempts to "dilute" the Belgian-Luxembourg unit within the euro area proved fruitless. Established in the early 1920s, he not only saved, but also pursues an independent foreign policy. At a recent meeting of the Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce for Russia and Belarus in Brussels, noted that the economic partnership between the two blocks will be even more versatile and cramped.

While in the EU are trying to find ways out of the crisis, the interest in the EEA explicitly stated Italy. Rome asks "switch on" the Customs Union launched last year, the largest Italian-Serbian machine-building plant in Kragujevac. The company produces more than 200,000 vehicles (model Fiat 500L) and expects to deliver them, including the countries of the Customs Union. Between the Customs Union and Serbia established a free trade zone, which, however, does not apply to products produced in cooperation with third countries. However, sources indicate that the proposal from the peninsula Vladimir Putin reacted favorably.

"The Russian market is particularly promising for us, because you have a growing demand for compact and easy to use auto — said the correspondent of" File-RF "Minister for Trade and Finance Mladjan Dinkic. — At first, we are ready to export to Russia 20-25 thousand cars a year. As our consultations with President Vladimir Putin, these supplies can be included in the regime of free trade. In the future we plan to expand the production of new models in the territory of the Customs Union. "

To be precise, Rome and Belgrade offer a temporary solution quotas for duty-free importation issued in Serbia "Fiat." And in the coming months should be addressed up production of these cars in the region of the Customs Union.

It is interesting that similar projects — the Soviet-Yugoslav-Italian — were studied in the early 1970s. Mladjan Dinkic of them remembers. "There have been proposals to develop the export of Italian cars and parts to your country with the Yugoslav factories, — the minister said in response to the question" File-Russian. " — Or create a co-production of the SFRY and then exit the Soviet market. As you can see, today, those plans were in demand. "

It should be noted that the interest of the Customs Union is growing not only in Europe. At the beginning of the end of March this year, the negotiations with Vietnam, shows Deputy Foreign Minister of Belarus Alexander Guryanov, "TC wants to work out a formula of agreements on free trade with other countries in Southeast Asia." In addition, in the structures of the Customs Union is considering introducing similar regimes with India, Mongolia, Chile.

Projects of free trade zones with TS are also offered by Macedonia, Algeria, Egypt and Syria, and in recent times — and the countries of Central America []. According to estimates of the RF CCI, duty-free trade with the countries mentioned may each year bring Customs Union is not less than $ 20 billion in economic benefits only from the transition to settlements in national currencies. This figure was confirmed in the UN regional commissions.

The Customs Union is the basis to build a whole new trade and overall economic system, recognized by independent experts from different countries.
