Kyrgyzstan joined the Eurasian Economic union

On 5 August 2015, Kyrgyzstan became the fifth member of the recent Eurasian Economic Union. The country will soon open its custom border to Russia, Armenia, Belarus and Kazakhstan.

The Eurasian Economic Union has attracted much attention from its neighbours since its creation. Vietnam has already signed a FTA, while India is on the way. A free trade zone between the EEU and Thailand might also be launched in 2016. Last but not least, Syrian Prime Minister Wael Halqi said in July that the country would be willing to join the Eurasian Union.
