State Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov believes the rates and level of integration processes of Russia and Belarus are unsatisfactory
"Although within the framework of the Union State, a certain headway of integration processes is seen, their rates and level of efficiency cannot satisfy either us or our Belarussian colleagues," Gryzlov said speaking at the eighth St Petersburg international economic forum. In March 2004, Gryzlov was elected Chairman of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Belarus-Russia Union. He noted that the recent working meeting of the Russian and Belarussian presidents in Sochi, as well as the session of the Union State Council of Ministers in Minsk led to substantial agreements on a number of urgent issues of economic cooperation. "On their part, Russian and Belarussian parliamentarians have important groundwork on unification of the legal bases of our countries in different economic spheres," he added. Gryzlov also touched upon the issue of the common economic space, noting that the fourth convocation State Duma acts consecutively in this direction. Gryzlov recalled that the agreement on the formation of the Common Economic Space of the four countries was ratified by parliaments of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan "practically simultaneously." "This agreement creates a real basis for resolving many difficult tasks, I mean, the creation of a free trade zone, unification of customs and tariff norms, elimination of these or those barriers, which hinder economic cooperation," he said. Gryzlov said the development and adoption of a whole complex of intergovernmental agreements on the Common Economic Space. "They are to result in the practical creation of a common economic space," he added.
