Legal Aspects of an EEC-CMEA Agreement

  • Josef Mrázek
  • Alexej Kohout


Talks between the Council of Mutual Economic Assistance (CMEA) and the European Economic Community (EEC) have been going on since 1976. They are in the centre of interest from both the political and economic points of view, because it is a matter of relations between organisations belonging to different social systems. The CMEA and EEC are the most substantial integration units in the world today and each of them has a great economic potential; CMEA alone accounts for one-third of the value of the world’s industrial production. These negotiations are in the centre of attention also from the legal point of view, because of the essential differences existing between the legal concepts and institutional structures of the two entities.1
