Europe from Lisbon to Vladivostok: Dream or Reality?

January 13, 2017, 09:30 – 11:30, Building 5, 4th Floor, White Hall

The contradictions between national interests and globalization have increased at the end of 2016. The TTP and TTIP projects may not be realized. The question of clarification of the growth drivers of national economies (GDP growth) and the adjustment of guidance in the matters of trade and economic integration are particularly pointed. At the same time, the historical trade-economic relations of states in the space from Lisbon to Vladivostok are stable and mutually beneficial. 

Issues for Discussion

  • Are there any growth prospects to shape the single European/Russian economic space?
  • Are businesses interested in implementing the Greater Eurasia Project?
  • Are integration alliances in the past, or do the EU and EEU have a future, in particular, in regard to the elaboration of an inter-block trade and economic agreement?
