On February 28, this year, the CSTO Secretary General Imangali Tasmagambetov met with Denis Manturov, the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation - Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia, Chairman of the CSTO Interstate Commission for Military-Economic Cooperation.

The meeting participants noted that one of the most sought-after areas of interaction in the CSTO format was military and economic cooperation. "Today a sufficient and solid legal framework has been created for the development of practical cooperation between domestic defense industry enterprises and defense sector enterprises in the Organization’s member states," Denis Manturov noted.

Imangali Tasmagambetov emphasized the importance of interaction in this direction and emphasized that of the approximately sixty documents adopted to date within the framework of the Organization with the status of interstate treaties (agreements, protocols), about 30 percent regulated the development of military-economic cooperation.

"It is necessary to implement practical measures to establish multilateral cooperation of defense industry enterprises of the CSTO member states for joint development and production of weapons and military equipment, creation of service centers for their maintenance and repair," the CSTO Secretary General said. In his opinion, the current geopolitical situation in the modern world and the increasing tensions clearly show that the need to unite the existing potential of defense industry enterprises of the CSTO member states is of particular importance today.

Imangali Tasmagambetov informed about the work carried out by the CSTO Secretariat in preparation for the XXI meeting of the ICMEC, which is planned to be held in late April this year in the capital of the Republic of Tajikistan, Dushanbe.

In addition, the sides have discussed holding a CSTO Congress and Exhibition Event in 2024 – “The International Forum on Collective Security "Interpolitech”. This forum under the auspices of the CSTO will be held for the first time in accordance with the decision of the CSTO Collective Security Council of 23 November 2022. The CSTO Secretary General noted the importance of Russia's active participation in its preparation and organization.
