Kyrgyzstan: Kyrgyzstan Joins Eurasian Economic Union

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On August 12, 2015, Kyrgyzstan officially became the fifth member of the Eurasian Economic Union [1] (EAEU). As part of its EAEU accession package, Kyrgyzstan has committed to eventually adopt the unified tariff schedule of the EAEU. This report contains an unofficial translation of the agriculture-related portion of Kyrgyzstan’s EAEU import tariff commitments. Kyrgyzstan will be able to apply customs duties that are different (lower) from the EAEU tariff rates for a handful of agricultural items (bovine and fish genetics, young plants, seed potatoes, kidney beans for sowing, corn seed hybrids, sauces, and preparations for animal feeds) until 2020.
