The EAEC attempts substantial integration in post-soviet nations. It arose out of the CIS customs union as all the members were CIS members. The agreement strives to create a common market, customs union, standardized currency exchange, develop programs for social and economic development, a general energy market and several equal rights for citizens, including health care. The EAEC consists of an intergovernmental council, Secretariat, Commission of the Permanent Representatives, Interstate parliamentary assembly, Law Court, and Integration Committee.
