Business Dialogue
Pavilion G, conference hall G25 (2nd floor)

The agenda of trade, economic, and investment collaboration between Russia and its EAEU partners with ASEAN countries is systematically expanding, as evidenced by the recent programme of cooperation between the Eurasian Economic Commission and the ASEAN Secretariat until 2025. Key focuses for the further development of cooperation between the business communities of the two associations include aspects of sustainable development, the implementation of environmental and climate projects, industrial cooperation, processes involving the digital transformation of the economy, and the circular economy. Moreover, initiatives implemented as part of the Year of Scientific and Technical Cooperation that Russia and ASEAN declared in 2022 could become effective tools in supporting such cooperation. What institutional decisions need to be made to intensify scientific and technical cooperation and establish industrial cooperation between high-tech enterprises in EAEU and ASEAN countries? What will the energy transition of national economies to low-carbon sources look like? What opportunities exist for implementing joint environmental, nature conservation, and climate projects? Are there prospects for harmonizing national digital agendas? What practices in building digital infrastructure could be useful for Eurasian and ASEAN businesses?
