Greater Eurasian Partnership: Synergy of Politics and Business. What is Needed to Create a Common Economic Space on the Continent?
The Greater Eurasian Partnership, an initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin, needs to be re-envisioned through the lens of the new geopolitical situation, with the West imposing sanctions on Russia and, by extension, on its allies and partners as well. The policy of the United States and the West aims to contain the development of this integration project, create difficulties in cooperation between Russia and China, and put up obstacles to the creation of a unified Greater Eurasia. However, in the current situation, the Greater Eurasian Partnership is precisely what could provide an effective way to protect the common economic interests of the countries of Eurasia and a platform to consolidate them to ensure a stable and secure future for both the continent as a whole and any nation on the continent. What else needs to be done to finalize the establishment and effective functioning of the Greater Eurasian Partnership in the current political and economic conditions? What are the areas in which key principles of interaction need to be developed?
