In 2024, the Eurasian Economic Union celebrates the 10th anniversary of the Treaty on the EAEU, which was signed on 29 May 2014. The heads of the EAEU member states, aware of the peculiarities of the current external conditions and striving for the formation of a high-tech and innovative Eurasian space, digital transformation of economies, stimulation of business activity, and ensuring positive changes in the lives of citizens, defined the vector of further development of the Union last year. On 25 December 2023, they adopted the Declaration on further development of economic processes within the EAEU until 2030 and for the period until 2045, titled the “Eurasian Economic Path”. The key priorities for Eurasian integration include providing the EAEU common market with essential goods and resources, establishing a common space for cooperation and technological development, and elaborating a unified transport and logistics infrastructure. Additionally, there is a focus on creating a common financial market, promoting economic collaboration in sectors with integration potential, and positioning the EAEU as a significant economic pole in the global arena. In this regard, what is needed to achieve a qualitative breakthrough in these areas? What projects are already being implemented or could emerge as promising? How can business cooperation in these areas be stimulated? What measures should be taken to transform the EAEU internal market into a hub of innovation, scientific, and technological progress? What are the possibilities of utilizing natural resources to enhance cooperative capacity? What are the opportunities for member states to cooperate in regulating artificial intelligence?
