Egypt, EAEU to hold new round of trade talks this month

New round of EAEU trade agreement talks: Egypt and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) will resume on Saturday talks over a trade agreement that would also see the creation of freetrade zones in Egypt, head of the Egyptian Commercial Service Authority Ahmed Antar tells Mubasher. Trade and Industry Minister Amr Nassar had said at the beginning of the year that the trade agreement will be signed by the end of 2019, and the two sides will meet once every three months to hammer out the final agreement. The initial framework was signed in November by Nassar and Eurasian Economic Commission Trade Minister Veronika Nikishina.
