We are ready to move towards a common economic space; we are ready to build equal relations on both the eastern and western tracks, without losing our own supra-nationality and deepening the integration.
As a regional integrational association, the CIS exists, and the 25 years of its history have not been spent in vain; we have something to show for it both to the global community and to one another.
The future of the CIS lies in our common economic interests. As long as our economies keep creating added value, our interlinks will persist and this space will develop.
The CIS is a good institution of the good neighborhood policy that has proven its worth, but today we are facing serious challenges…
Our key task in financial cooperation is to create fintech technologies. The Mir payment card is one example. After they see the efficicacy of this tool for themselves over the next two to three years, many CIS countries will adopt it too.
The CIS is, indeed, a convenient platform for developing economic cooperation, and no amount of political decision-making or political will could have kept our commonwealth together for 25 years, had we not been tied by long-term, mutually beneficial economic links.
The CIS today is premised on keeping and developing a free trade area.
