CHANGES TO THE INVESTMENT CLIMATE IN THE CIS

14:45-16:00 Pavilion 4, Hall 4.3


The CIS economies are poised to undergo a number of macroeconomic changes brought about by integration within the Common Economic Space and Russia’s accession to the WTO. What are the prospects of this economic sphere going forward, and what is the likely impact of integration on the competitiveness and business environment of individual economies?

Highlights

Everything that is happening right now in Europe is a clear demonstration of how any slowing of the integration processes, or delays in making important decisions on integration, can turn into a severe crisis.

Tatiana Valovaya
Member of the Board on Key Areas of Integration and Macroeconomic, Eurasian Economic Commission

We are not exploiting the advantages we gain by participating in integrative associations, such as the CIS, EurAsEC, the Union of Russia and Belarus. We share a common language in law; we have common legal concepts; we have common legal mechanisms – but these are not applied, and, by acceding to the WTO, we will finally be able to tap in to this potential and make broader use of it.

Vladimir Lafitsky
Federation Deputy Director
