Addressing Peace and Security Challenges through Trade and Economic Integration
Integration processes in Eurasia are a strategic priority for Russian foreign policy, while integration with the western part of the former Soviet Union is a European Union foreign policy objective. Sharing common security challenges and threats, such as conflicts in the Middle East, Europe and Eurasia have a clear interest in cooperating and meeting the challenges and opportunities aroused by Asia’s export economies, notably with regard to the ambitious Chinese Silk Road Economic Belt project.
In this session, panelists will assess the challenges and opportunities offered by trade and economic integration between Europe and Eurasia, and the opening of trade routes toward Asia and beyond.
