Project Group 4. CIS/Eurasian Economic Community/EEC Customs Union cooperation.

CIS/Eurasian Economic Community/EEC Customs Union cooperation Project Group (PG4) was formed in November 2010 and is co-chaired by T.Valovaya and I.Finogenov. The main goal of this Project Group is development of the financial services market in Russia and the border countries, creating a regional financial hub for the neighbor states in Moscow. This Project Group is engaged in the analysis of existing agreements on the common market and the CIS/EEC regulations.

On 9 December 2010, several common market agreements were signed to create a free cash-flow, coordinated macroeconomic policy, common approaches to currency issues and establishment of a unified supranational financial institution for the common market countries.
