Strategy for the Future of the Eurasian Economic Union

The Global Economy in Search of a Balance
Congress Centre, conference hall D4

2019 is the 5th anniversary of the Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union and the 25th anniversary of the Eurasian idea. Since its inception, the Union has strengthened its position in the international arena and achieved great results. Yet, given the significant changes to the world over the past five years and the impact this is having on Union member states, it is necessary to update the integration agenda. On 6 December 2018, the Declaration on Further Development of Integration Processes within the EEU was adopted in an effort to form a high-tech and innovative Eurasian space, transform economies digitally, promote business and ensure positive changes in people’s lives. This document opens up new opportunities for cooperation in areas such as innovation, digital technologies, green technologies, energy conservation and efficiency as well as renewable energy, bioengineering and nanotechnology. This year, there are plans to determine key development areas for Eurasian economic integration up to 2025. In this respect, what is needed to make a qualitative breakthrough in these areas? What projects are already being implemented or may be initiated? How can we encourage business cooperation in these areas? What measures should be taken to make the EEU domestic market a territory of innovation, scientific and technological progress?
