The fast-developing trend for creating regional integrated structures in Eurasia and Latin America, and the broadening of the scale of foreign economic cooperation are shaping the need for the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the governments of Latin America and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) to seek common ground and areas for cooperation.
Thanks to regional integration initiatives by the EAEU and the CELAC countries, not only are major opportunities to increase the momentum of trade and economic relations being created, a wide variety of new mechanisms and channels for interregional cooperation are also being forged.
The challenge that we face today is how to systematize developing relations between the EAEU and CELAC countries, taking into consideration accumulated experience and the specifics of development in Eurasia and Latin America.
