Maxim Shaskolskiy, the Head of the FAS Russia, stated on this fact at the EAEU 

The meeting of the heads of the competent authorities of the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union and a member of the Board (Minister) for Competition and Antimonopoly Regulation was held on September 16 at the EAEU site in the video conferencing mode.

As Maxim Shaskolskiy noted, further work on improving the legal framework of the Union is an absolute priority not only for the FAS Russia but also for the antimonopoly authorities of the EAEU member states and the Eurasian Economic Commission.

The Head of the antimonopoly authority also named the strategic goals and objectives of the FAS Russia for the medium term. They are related to the implementation of the National Competition Development Plan in the Russian Federation for 2021-2025.

The key tasks for the implementation of the National Plan for 2021-2025 included the development of small and medium-sized businesses, ensuring effective and transparent management of state and municipal property, and digitalization of antimonopoly and tariff regulation. 

The FAS Russia pays attention to further improvement of law enforcement practice in digital markets, approaches to determining such markets, assessing the state of competition in them.

Elena Zaeva, Head of the Department for Regulation of Telecommunications and Information Technology of the FAS Russia, noted that the development of small companies as part of large ecosystems can help to increase the level of competitiveness of Russian companies in global markets.

An increase in competition in the field of mobile communications is of great importance for citizens. Due to the work of the antimonopoly service, at least three mobile operators are now operating in 80% of Russian cities with a population of more than 20 thousand people. National and intra-network roaming has been cancelled, due to which an unjustified difference in tariffs for cellular communication services when travelling across the Russian Federation has been eliminated.

Moreover, the FAS Russia considers it necessary to further discuss the issue of “legalization of parallel imports” and make appropriate amendments to the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union at the Union's site. Tatyana Nikitina, Head of the Department for Control over Advertising and Unfair Competition, noted that the transition to the international principle of exhaustion of rights will strengthen intra-brand competition.

An increase in the number of importers to the territory of the EAEU will contribute to a decrease in retail prices for the goods of the rightsholder, an increase in employment of the population and an expansion of business activity of small and medium-sized importers.
