Including the Far East in Global Value Chains: Effective Strategies
Signing free trade agreements <…> is a deliberate policy that helps create opportunities for setting chains – they can even be incomplete – in the countries that we share specific export interest and potential with. Our free trade agreement with Vietnam is effective now. <…> We can see that what this agreement helps us with is not just direct export sales, but with chain elements that were in there on top of traditional duties reduction

Including the Far East in Global Value Chains: Effective Strategies
One of the trends in the development of such chains [value added chains, – Ed.] is the focus shift from the commodity stage of production to more complex high-tech ones. As we can unfortunately state, the mechanism of value chains in the Russian Federation has not gone beyond the energy sector so far in contrast to such countries as the USA, EU and China already established in creating and benefiting from such chains. There are certain success stories that go beyond this rule, such as MAZDA SOLLERS. It is a joint venture that produces engines in Vladivostok: the engine is assembled from the parts imported from Japan and then the whole engine is exported back to Japan. Most of the chains our country is involved in are unfortunately incomplete. In many ways, our initial links are still outside the Union, and final product is almost never exported

The Digital Transformation of International Trade: E-commerce and Beyond
“It seems very important to us that, in parallel with our efforts in our national Eurasian market, we are working very actively to develop an international standard in the form of an international agreement. In our view, the World Trade Organization seems to be the most appropriate platform, and it should release a package of rules to regulate e-commerce, setting out definitions and using those key elements that have served, as part of a package of WTO agreements, as the basis for international trade in traditional goods for many years

The Digital Transformation of International Trade: E-commerce and Beyond
The major players in e-commerce are not governments, but major digital ecosystems like Alibaba and Amazon, and it is these companies that are setting the rules of the game. They are ahead of the curve and the state is essentially playing catch up

The Digital Transformation of International Trade: E-commerce and Beyond
One of the problems that is certainly very far from being solved at present and which requires serious regulation is the safety of products that we buy through online retail, because it does not fall under technical regulations

Russia and the EAEU in the Asia Pacific: Key Integration Factors and Prospects for Strengthening Business Ties
As the rules of global trade change, so we need to take active steps to create our own trade regimes. We need to boldly and without hesitation expand our range of agreements in a proactive manner

Russia and the EAEU in the Asia Pacific: Key Integration Factors and Prospects for Strengthening Business Ties
Global trade is characterized by stagnation and tangible protectionism. Traditional rules of global trade are being reconsidered. Protectionism is growing faster than markets, and this is affecting competition to a significant degree. The temptation to mirror this protectionism in one’s own regulations and close oneself off is a dangerous trend. We in the EAEU are not in any way subject to these fluctuations. For us, it is clear that continuing along the path of liberalization with our partners in the Asia Pacific is key to prosperity and economic growth

Russia and the EAEU in the Asia Pacific: Key Integration Factors and Prospects for Strengthening Business Ties
The agreement with Vietnam goes to show that an open trade policy is the correct course to follow. Our trade with Vietnam grew in a balanced and mutually beneficial manner. The agreement changed the mentality of businesses in our countries, which enabled us to make the next leap forward in trade policy – to sign an economic agreement with China and a temporary agreement with Iran, which will come into force in the coming days. We also plan to sign agreements with Singapore and Serbia in October. This demonstrates that our economy is not about to close to others

Crossroads on the Silk Road
A tool that will allow investors to make strategic decisions on a predictable basis are sectoral dialogues in specific sectors of the economy with access to implementation of joint projects. An important thing here is that these are not bilateral Russia–China projects, but these are multilateral projects involving three or more countries. On 27 September, as part of the 10th meeting of the Presidium of the Business Council, the Russian metallurgical industry will be ready to present its vision of sectoral cooperation with China. For us, this is a very important response from the business that our agreement was actually needed

Crossroads on the Silk Road
This May we signed an agreement between the EAEU and China. It is not preferential, it does not concern the reduction of customs duties, but, for the first time in history, it creates a common interface between our union and China for resolving the most sensitive business issues: simplifying trade procedures and lowering non-tariff barriers

Forging the New Global Supply Chain Architecture
Protectionism should not affect the trends of regionalization and globalization that have developed in world trade. <...> A neat balance must be found between import substitution, which is a response to protectionism and sanctions. It is a trend towards the liberalization of world trade, which should again be on the agenda of trade policies of our countries

Coordinating the International Effort Against Illicit Trafficking in Manufactured Goods: Potential Ways Forward
Marking is a tool for ensuring traceability of the entire life cycle of a product. <...> Using the example of a pilot project in fur coats, we can <...> say that labelling is a promising tool to combat counterfeit. When we implemented the fur coats project, estimates of the counterfeit share were at 60-70% in the market, after the first year of implementation <...> we increased the legal turnover of the goods by 7 times
