MINSK, May 19 (RIA Novosti) - Members of the Eurasian Economic Community (Eurasec) should start implementation of agreements on economic development as soon as possible, the president of Belarus said Friday.
Alexander Lukashenko said priority issues included free movement of goods and transit of electric energy and oil products.
"The solution of transit issues will boost Eurasec's development," Lukashenko said at a meeting of heads of Eurasec member states in the Belarusian capital, Minsk.
Founded in 2001, Eurasec comprises Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan.
Lukashenko said volumes of mutual investments should be broader within the framework of the community.
"Belarus has prepared a proposal and is initiating intergovernmental targeted programs in the spheres of health, microbiology and electronics," he said.
Lukashenko added that joint programs in the sphere of high technologies were also very important.
