Apart from that, session participants will discuss the following: a draft convention on the legal status of migrant workers from CIS countries and their families; amendments to the principles of VAT collection in the course of trade operations inside the Commonwealth; the setting up of a united CIS air defence system in 2002 and expenditures involved; and a draft concept of coordinated agrarian policy.
