REGIONAL ECONOMIC COMMUNITIES: INTEGRATION TO COMPETE AND PATHWAY TO INCLUSIVE GLOBALIZATION

11:45-13:00 Pavilion 5, Conference Hall 5.2
Over the past several decades regional economic integration has become an integral part of the global economic processes going hand-in-hand with globalization; and regional economic integration is expected to accelerate over the coming years. As with many other regions, economic integration in the post-Soviet space continues in parallel to a globalization of regional activities. What are the opportunities for synergies between the European and Eurasian integration processes in light of the prospective formation of the Eurasian Economic Union by the beginning of 2015? Can the universal character of regionalization lead to the formation of an all-inclusive single economic space?
