This year, The Eurasia Center and The Eurasian Business Coalition will organize a very special Conference which will highlight the new opportunities of Doing Business with The Eurasia Economic Union.
The Eurasia Economic Union will officially be launched on January 1, 2015. We are convening this Conference, given the high importance of understanding how the new Eurasian Union can improve opportunities and trade with centers of economic development, in one of the largest markets in the world, which unites more than 170 million people. A number of Fortune 500 companies are already trading in each or all of these nations and now their goods and services can be available within the common economic sphere that comprise 15% of the world’s landmass. In addition, both Belarus and Kazakhstan are accelerating their accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO). As former obstacles to trade are being removed in this vast free trade zone, its integration and understanding becomes important for the international business.
Panelists will address vital topics of business, trade, energy, finance and investments. Officials from Eurasian nations will offer new opportunities from the privatization of state-owned companies and other enterprises and strategic areas of investment in Eurasia’s regions. The Conference will include presentations on energy and natural resources, high technology, mergers and acquisitions, economic development and public support for investments.
As always, large corporations, mid-size and small enterprises as well as entrepreneurs are involved in The Eurasia Center’s Eurasian Business Coalition’s efforts to build better economic relations and build bridges for peace and to create jobs for the future both in Eurasia and here in America. Attention has been focused on Ukraine and the geopolitical divide which began Ukraine was deciding whether to join the European Union or Eurasian Union. Regardless of the consequences, a transition and a deeper understanding is needed to map and coordinate the pros and cons of such relationship and of creating bridges of trade and prosperity rather than ravines of conflict and destruction.
The Eurasian Economic Union is a three trillion dollar GDP trading zone per year and there will be increasing opportunities for economic platforms of growth within the Union. It is has been the mission of The Eurasia Center for the past 25 years to build those bridges of peace and understanding and through the Eurasian Business Coalition promoting economic progress and harmony. Representatives and business persons of all nations are welcome to participate in this Conference.
