While global trade has declined significantly during the crisis, there are signs that a recovery is building speed. A number of trends are clearly evident in the current phase of global economic growth, including the digitalization of infrastructure, manufacturing and other industries supporting foreign trade. By late 2020, a number of restrictions and prohibitions began to be lifted. In addition, government regulatory mechanisms were improved through the creation of global integrated information systems and the transformation of regional integration models, fuelling a possible stable recovery in trade. What cutting-edge information and communication technologies are helping to facilitate barrier-free trade? How might these trends impact potential integration in the EAEU, and the prospects for creating a single information space? What role should the business sector play in the digitalization of end-to-end trade processes? What benefits, risks and problems are associated with digitalization, both for the public and private sectors? What should be done to ensure that information is effectively shared between government bodies, industries, and national governments? What initiatives need to be put in place to ensure successful development?
