In June 2016, the SCO will mark its fifteenth anniversary. Participants will discuss the main achievements, current state, and prospects for the development of economic cooperation within the SCO, including opportunities to expand the transport and logistics potential of SCO countries and experiences in setting up industrial parks. Also, discussions will focus on SMEs as a factor in interregional cooperation, in particular opportunities to broaden interaction (e.g. exhibitions and fairs, congresses, online platforms, etc.), and how business can play a role in strengthening cultural and humanitarian ties between SCO countries.

Key moments

The simplest thing to begin with is harmonization of operations on the capital markets, which would provide us with a mechanism for free and transparent capital flows.
Sanjar Aspandiiarov
We must form an agenda for the year to come that would help us not only prepare a road map, but also launch real moves to lift barriers and create a comfortable and economically attractive environment in the SCO space.
Alexey Likhachev
In the modern world, where Trans-Pacific Partnership already functions and there are talks about establishing a Trans-Atlantic Partnership, the issue of survival of regional blocs and groups is very acute. Partners must be sought.
