    Kyrgyz business will expand supplies to the EEU market of over 182 million customers, Kyrgyz Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Pankratov said Friday.

    BISHKEK (Sputnik) — Kyrgyz business will expand supplies to the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) market of over 182 million customers, Kyrgyz Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Pankratov said Friday.

    Kyrgyzstan joined the economic bloc in August 2015.

    "Kyrgyzstan's accession to the Eurasian Economic Union opens up new horizons and new business opportunities for Kyrgyz entrepreneurs. There are more than 182 million people living in the EEU, and this is a huge market," Pankratov said.

    He added that the EEU membership would stimulate textile and clothing industries, which were actively developing in the course of the last several years.

    The Eurasian Economic Union is a Russia-initiated integration association, streamlining the flow of goods and services between its member countries, namely Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan.
