June 16, 11:00 AM –12:15 PM

The agenda of trade, economic and investment interaction of Russia and its EAEU partners with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries is systematically expanding, as evidenced by the adopted program of cooperation between the Eurasian Economic Commission and the ASEAN Secretariat until 2025.

Key directions for the further development of cooperation between the business communities of the two associations include aspects of sustainable development, the implementation of environmental and climate projects, industrial cooperation, processes involving the digital transformation of the economy, and the circular economy. Among other things, initiatives implemented as part of the Year of Scientific and Technical Cooperation that Russia and ASEAN declared in 2022 could become effective tools in supporting such cooperation.
