The Eurasian Economic Union Conference: Please join us for what will be an important follow-up to the momentous Eurasian Week that was convened in Yerevan, Armenia, October 22-24, 2018, where The Eurasia Center was represented! As The Eurasian Economic Union (Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan) completes the difficult tasks of removing barriers to trade among its members, creating a free trade zone, many companies and sectors are gaining new access to markets which were previously hindered by trade barriers. We are convening this Conference to familiarize the U.S. business community, as well as policymakers, with The EAEU – given the importance of this integrated single market which comprises over 183 million people, spans 15% of the world’s landmass, and generates a gross domestic product of over 4 trillion U.S. dollars. A number of Fortune 500 companies are already trading in some or all of these nations.

Armenia and Kyrgyzstan are the newest members of the EAEU; Belarus is accelerating its accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO) and has set 2020 as the goal to join. Kazakhstan joined the WTO in October 2015. China and member countries of the Eurasian Economic Union signed an agreement in Astana, Kazakhstan, to cut trade barriers and facilitate economic activities in May 2018.

Vietnam has signed a Free Trade Agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union and in January 2018 India has entered into negotiations to start a Free Trade Agreement with the EEC. Many other nations are reaching agreements for special trading rights with the Eurasian Economic Union.

The Developing Eurasian Economic Union
(Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia)

This event allows participants to interact with those in Eurasia seeking to expand multilateral trade, direct investments, business opportunities and open communication. Participants at the conference will speak with officials from the Eurasian Economic Commission, the Head of the Russian Economic Department to the United States, representatives from Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Armenia as well as experts who have years of experience in doing business in Eurasia. Executives from numerous US corporations and officials from different countries will attend.

EEU Block

As former obstacles to trade are being removed in this vast free trade zone, an in-depth understanding of new opportunities and developments there becomes increasingly important. Conference panelists and EEU officials will address vital topics of business, trade, energy, finance and investments – including privatization of state-owned enterprises, requirements for capital infusion to underwrite infrastructure, transport and energy projects, and advanced technology and engineering opportunities in renewable energy, ‘Smart Cities’ and other areas.

As always, large corporations, mid-size and small enterprises and entrepreneurs are involved in The Eurasia Center & Eurasian Business Coalition's efforts to build better economic relations, build bridges for peace, and create jobs for the future both in Eurasia and here in America. We hope you will join us in learning more about the Eurasian Economic Union, and in helping form working relationships, programs and solutions that will contribute to better, peaceful and productive East-West collaboration; offering new positive steps.
