Armenia will give the Customs Union countries access to the Middle East markets, Integration and Macroeconomics Minister of the Eurasian Economic Commission Tatiana Valovaya said at the 2nd Economic Forum of the Republican Party of Armenia "Armenia-Customs Union: Opportunities and Challenges" on Saturday.
She said that though quite unstable, the Middle East is a very interesting market.
According to Valovaya, free transfer of goods in the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union will benefit Armenia's business and will boost the country's exports. "Today Armenia exports to the Customs Union mostly agricultural products but it may also consider other options, for example, information technologies," Valovaya said, noting that she was impressed by the tablets to be produced on the basis of an Armenian operating system.
