We must form an agenda for the year to come that would help us not only prepare a road map, but also launch real moves to lift barriers and create a comfortable and economically attractive environment in the SCO space.

In the modern world, where Trans-Pacific Partnership already functions and there are talks about establishing a Trans-Atlantic Partnership, the issue of survival of regional blocs and groups is very acute. Partners must be sought.
