The New Economic Order: Responding to the Challenges of the Time
Congress Centre, conference hall B2

The Eurasian Economic Union is successfully passing through global challenges, including those of a non-economic nature, ensuring sustainable economic development for the EAEU member states. Heads of member states adopting Strategy 2025 was a timely and far-sighted step. In today's highly turbulent global economic landscape it provides a stabilizing basis for development, while also carrying the potential of an integration breakthrough. A policy aimed at the development of innovations is being implemented, new joint industries and markets of the EAEU are being opened, the digital transformation of the main sectors of the economy and management processes is taking place, while the infrastructure is being developed. The optimal growth trajectory for the creation of a new quality integration implies: uniting efforts for the self-sufficient economic development of the EAEU countries; import substitution priority and industrial cooperation within the EAEU; creation of trans-Eurasian corporations; social progress; expansion of the economic aspects of humanitarian cooperation; mutually beneficial cooperation with stable international partners; formation of the EAEU image in the new system of global economic relations. Who will occupy the niche of the Union's main partners in the medium term? How to unlock the transport and logistics potential of the EAEU? What are the prospects for the development of cooperative ties within the EAEU in the priority sectors, including production of electrical equipment, aircraft and automotive industry, metallurgical production? What is the role of Eurasian integration in achieving social progress? How can new areas of economic cooperation affect the well-being of citizens of the Union countries?
