Economic Policy Agreed

MINSK — Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan signed on Friday a macroeconomic policy coordination agreement, a key part of their drive to create a free trade zone in 2012. Government sources told Reuters that the agreement covers a common approach to policies regarding debt, exchange rates and inflation.

The Russian government said the three prime ministers signed the economic agreement, as well as documents on migration and access to natural monopolies services, at their meeting in Minsk.

Friday’s agreements are among several being negotiated to form a common economic area across the three countries in 2012.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
