Free Trade Agreements
 

All member states of the Customs Union are also signatories to the CIS Treaty on Free Trade Area of the October 18th, 2011. Armenia, Kyrgyz Republic, Republic of Moldova, Tajikistan and Ukraine are all signatories to this Treaty. This Treaty was developed with a core intent to unify all existing bilateral Free Trade Agreements between CIS countries. 
 

The main provisions of the new Treaty are based on the rules and principles of the World Trade Organization.

Apart from issues of abolition of import and export customs duties and quantitative restrictions free trade area in accordance with the Treaty provides: 
1. National treatment in respect of internal taxes and regulation;

2. National treatment in respect of government procurements;
3. Freedom of transit;
4. Application of technical measures, as well as sanitary and phytosanitary measures, on the basis of the relevant regulations of the World Trade Organization;
5. Regulation of application of anti-dumping, countervailing and safeguard measures in mutual trade.

Bilateral Free Trade Agreements between the CU member states and Serbia are also still in effect.
 

In addition, currently the CU member states are negotiating Free Trade Agreements with the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, New Zealand and the European Free Trade Association.
