This year, The Eurasia Center and The Eurasian Business Coalition are organized a very successful Conference which highlighted the opportunities of ‘Doing Business with The Eurasian Economic Union EAEU (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan)’. The Eurasian Economic Union was officially established on January 1, 2015. We are convening this Conference to familiarized 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), which Kazakhstan joined in October 2015. And China, India, Vietnam and many other nations are reaching agreements for special trading rights with the Eurasian Economic Union.
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 addressed 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. Our Conferences help build practical working relationships, programs and solutions that will contribute to better, peaceful and productive East-West collaboration.
