At a meeting with heads of delegations from CIS states in Kazakhstan, the president of the country, Nursultan Nazarbayev, declared today that the Eurasian Economic Union (EASE) has a big future, despite current difficulties.As reported on the newswire, the Kazakhstan leader also said that he doesn't see an alternative to the integration of all CIS countries and that such a union has good potential. Now, when all of them are enduring the global crisis and a reduction in the prices of export goods, collaboration and cooperation are paramount. Therefore, apart from political events, there is no alternative to integration. EEAS is this internationally integrated economic association and was formed from the Customs Union and the Common Economic Space and has been functioning since January 1st of the current year. The current members of the EEU are Russia, Armenia, Belarus and Kazakhstan, and, as of May 29th, Kyrgyzstan.
