Eurasian Union: Expectations and Prospects - VI Gaidar forum
At the VI Gaidar Forum "Russia and the World: New Vector", a panel discussion "Eurasian Union: Expectations and Prospects" took place. The event is annually organized by the Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration under the President of the Russian Federation and the V.I. E.T. Gaidar.
The forum is attended by Deputy Ministers of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East Kirill Stepanov, Oleg Skufinsky and Maxim Shereykin. They will participate in the work of discussion platforms, as well as discuss with experts their assessments of the work of the Ministry for the Development of the Far East, according to the official website of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East.
Andrey Slepnev, Minister for Trade of the Eurasian Economic Commission, recalled that in 2008-2009, a decision was made on three main steps in the integration process: signing a free trade zone of the CH, intensifying the “construction” of the Customs and Eurasian Unions, and Russia's accession to the WTO. All these steps illustrate a course aimed at increasing competitiveness and involvement in world integration.
The speaker believes that the customs union has changed the trend of mutual trade, namely, the volume of domestic trade is now growing faster than foreign. And this is against the background of the fact that in 2014 there was an economic recession, and therefore, it is possible to compare the indicators with the statistics of 2014-2015 only after the devaluation.
Within the framework of the Eurasian Union, directions of cooperation with other integration associations are also opening. Including with the European Union, which in the future can help resolve the current political situation. The idea is based on the idea of forming a common space from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.
