Business Dialogue
Pavilion G, conference hall G25 (first floor)

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Russia and its EAEU partners have been able to sustain momentum in developing economic relations with ASEAN countries. At this time, new forms of cooperation should be determined, and balanced solutions must be found to develop and strengthen trade, economic partnerships, and investment between the EAEU and ASEAN. Russia continues to play a leading role in establishing relations with ASEAN partners, which is laying the groundwork for trade and economic cooperation between other EAEU countries and their association partners. What does EAEU–ASEAN cooperation mean for businesses, and what do businesses expect from dialogue between these two integration groups? What sectors should be prioritized in fostering closer relations between the EAEU and ASEAN, and which mechanisms should be implemented in order to take relations to a new level? What are the prospects of such cooperation, and how might this provide the foundation for an EAEU–ASEAN Greater Eurasian Partnership? What are the main outcomes of and overlapping opportunities for the Strategic Directions for Developing Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025 and the ASEAN Economic Community Blueprint 2025, and how do these policy papers inform strategies and opportunities for cooperation?
