The Ministers also considered priority areas for further joint work, including a draft intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in the fisheries sector. The document has been agreed upon, and the Russian side is currently working on the procedures needed to sign it. Dmitry Patrushev expressed confidence that the agreement would create additional conditions for the development of fisheries cooperation between the two countries. Kyrgyzstan is a landlocked country.

Ministers Dmitry Patrushev and Askarbek Dzhanybekov also signed a memorandum of cooperation in the supply of agricultural products. The document is expected to expand Russian-Kyrgyz agricultural trade. Both countries are members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), along with Armenia, Belarus, and Kazakhstan. The EAEU also has Free Trade Agreements with Iran, Serbia, Singapore and Vietnam and is currently negotiating tariff reductions and free trade with China, India and several other ASEAN and Asian nations.
