Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will meet with his Belarusian counterpart Sergei Sidorsky on Wednesday to discuss common economic space, Putin's spokesman said.
"Putin and Sidorsky agreed to hold a working meeting in Moscow on Wednesday to continue coordinating positions on common economic space," Dmitry Peskov said.
Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan established a customs union earlier this year. The three states plan to scrap their customs borders on July 1, 2011. They will then form a united economic space with common business rules on January 1, 2012.
The common economic space between the three countries is expected to ultimately result in the establishment of a single currency.
