The EAEU: Greater and Better Integration
The interest is there, the products to trade are there; however, we are also seeing that the possibilities are limited to a certain extent. So, we need new competitive goods and new production facilities – especially now, when in light of sanctions we need to address issues related to the domestic market, and work on exports

The EAEU: Greater and Better Integration
We must aim towards the establishment of new enterprises, new production facilities. And development institutions undoubtedly need to play a more active role in this regard. <...> We must create an environment where joint ventures and integration initiatives are of benefit to businesses

The EAEU: Greater and Better Integration
If, looking ahead, we are expecting that the Eurasian Economic Union must act to a certain extent as a central hub for integration in relation to the Greater Eurasian Partnership, then we absolutely need to expand the scope of the Eurasian Economic Union treaty

ASEAN – EAEU – SCO: Integration Segment of the Greater Eurasian Partnership
The first and most important thing for business is technical rules and regulation. Unless we resolve these issues, nothing will come of it. There will be barriers everywhere and goods won’t move between our countries. Another very important thing is what [will] there be for the people? It seems to me that a unified payment system should be set up here and we should issue a BRICS payment card

ASEAN – EAEU – SCO: Integration Segment of the Greater Eurasian Partnership
But we must look at questions of national security, specifically information security. Today we are all ‘digital’ and we are seeing sharp movements made by our non-partners against us, which can cause serious harm

ASEAN – EAEU – SCO: Integration Segment of the Greater Eurasian Partnership
Above all, we need to look at infrastructure projects. The second line is project cooperation. We can [talk] lots and lots about mutual trade, about impediments and so on. In principle, the Agreement on Eurasian Economic Cooperation signed in 2014 is primarily a trade agreement. <…> This is important but the prospects are, after all, in joint integration projects

The Progress and Challenges of Integration within the EAEU and the New Development Paradigm
Without question, there are issues surrounding the level of investment. In any case, we don’t have enough competitive goods to replace imports and go to the international market. That is why it is vital to explore the creation of joint ventures and greater investment. We are working very hard on this matter. <...> As our ultimate aim, I would say we need to have a Eurasian import-substitution programme in place

The Progress and Challenges of Integration within the EAEU and the New Development Paradigm
Work is under way on an agreement to introduce electronic navigation seals which would allow barrier-free movement of goods within our union and for export. However, it is a complex process. Currently, there are lots of competing views put forward by freight dispatchers and recipients, and by the fiscal authorities. It is not only individual shippers or business entities which are complaining – it is already an intergovernmental matter. That is why we believe that this tool of the electronic navigation seal will mark a big step forward in facilitating the barrier-free movement of goods within our union and for export

The Progress and Challenges of Integration within the EAEU and the New Development Paradigm
By 2025, all the targets set out in the 2014 Treaty on the Eurasian Economic Union should have been achieved. So, where are we now? In terms of trade in goods, the figures show that we are at about 75% of the way there. In terms of services and labour resources, we’re at about two thirds – more than 60%. However, the financial market is lagging behind somewhat. Experts have assessed it to stand at about 40% [in terms of progress on KPIs – ed.]. So, more effort clearly needs to be made in this area in order to get it on a similar level and move forward
