These projects perfectly complement each other” - Nurlan Kussainov, CEO of AIFC Authority noted.
The Eurasian Economic Commission is working to create a common financial market for the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), one of the elements of which should be a single exchange space. The Commission developed a draft Agreement on the brokers and dealers admission of one member state of the EEU to participate in organized trades on exchanges (trade organizers) of other member states. Also, EEC prepared a draft Agreement on mutual admission to placement and circulation of securities on exchanges (trade organizers) in the member states of the EEU. All this will promote the growth of mutual trade and investment cooperation and stimulate the development of financial markets of the EEU states. This was stated by Timur Zhaksylykov, member of the Collegium (Minister) for Economic and Financial Policy of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).
