YEREVAN, December 20. /ARKA/. Accession to the Customs Union (CU) will help Armenia use the experience of CU-member countries in agriculture, Armenia’s first deputy minister of agriculture Grisha Baghyan said.
Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan are quite developed in terms of agriculture and Armenia, when it joins the CU, will get an opportunity to expand its relations with these countries and get products at cheaper prices to its market, Baghiyan told a press conference Friday.
The membership in the CU will open new markets to Armenia and, consequently, will boost production of agriculture goods, the deputy minister said.
Being a CU-member Armenia will be able to offer particularly its fish, beef and apricots to other member countries.
According to Baghiyan, among products that may be successfully imported to Armenia are grains, dairy products, fodders and agricultural equipment in particular.
The roadmap for Armenia’s accession to the Customs Union is expected to be signed on December 24 in Moscow. –0--
