In 2016, the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), an integration association of five partner countries - Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Russia, celebrates its 1st year of establishment. The Treaty signed by the Heads of the States on May 29, 2014 in Astana lies in the basis of the EAEU. The Union was the next stage of development of the Eurasian economic integration. The idea was suggested by the President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev back in 1994. The first step involved the establishment of the Customs Union, which has grown into the Common Economic Space.
