There should be a single economic market formed by the year 2012. In fact, a classic version of the construction of such associations is offered, such associations are wellknown examples of Europe, as well as other regional alliances, like the EU-Turkey Association (signed in 1963), the Arab Common Market (1964), the Central American Common Market (1961), the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (1991). What are the benefits for the Customs Union participants? The Customs Union is an agreement between States to eliminate duties and the boundaries between them, and to
introduce common customs tariff for other states. The aim of the Customs Union’s participants is significant growth of their economies.
Kazakhstan’s participation in the Customs Union is an additional factor, which provides its economical and political stability. This will significantly expand the market of well-developed sectors of the economy and revive the ones which have been at a loss. More
comfortable and satisfactory conditions will be created for the cross-country flows of capital and work force; this factor will definitely lead to strong economical and social development.
