He reminded the audience that before the new comes into forceThe Customs Code of the Eurasian Economic Union has just over two months left. This document is the second most important after the agreement on the creation of Of the Eurasian Economic Union. According to Mr. Kurochkin, the main innovation of the Code is a significant simplification of customs procedures and their transfer to electronic form in order to exclude the negative impact of the human factor. Currently, in all countries of the EAEU, the document has been sent to parliaments and the procedure for its ratification has begun.
