Page ContentOn the 22nd of November, the Eurasian Economic Commission in collaboration with the Interstate bank is holding an international macroeconomic seminar «Is there a chance to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals provided global slowdown and growing uncertainty?» (the Seminar). International macroeconomic seminars have traditionally envisaged to discuss the most pertinent challenges and risks of the world and regional economy development, as well as the most prospective directions of the Eurasian integration. Aggravated geopolitical, ecological and social risks accompanied by growing tensions between countries entail governments limit their funding of “development” in favor of supporting “stability” by implementing conservative approaches and practices instead of proactive measures.
