Valdai Paper #25: Agenda for the EEU Economy

29.07.2015

The 25th Valdai paper is devoted to the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU), its evolution, current institutions as well as to the main steps of the agenda for the next years that can promote the most positive impact of the integration.

The authors consider the emergence of the EEU to be a major step forward after a number of false starts in the 1990s and 2000s. To promote the integration’s impact the authors suggest the agenda for next 10 years which includes completing the formation of a single market for goods and services, unifying non-tariff barriers within the union, coordinating macroeconomic policy, creating a network of free-trade areas and free-trade agreements. The authors note that despite the mechanisms have yet to undergo substantial improvements, the EEU is already a single economic space with a relatively clear development roadmap and growth prospects.

Evgeny Vinokurov, Dr. of Economics, Director of the Center for Integration Studies, Eurasian Development Bank.

Taras Tsukarev, Head of Projects at the Center for Integration Studies, Eurasian Development Bank.
