Current challenges of economic interaction between the Greater Eurasia countries, practical implementation of the “integrating integrations” concept and filling the unifying agenda in Eurasia were discussed by participants of the session “The Greater Eurasian Partnership as a New Pole of Growth: Potential and Prospects” held on June 6 as part of the 27th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Sergei Glazyev, Minister in charge of Integration and Macroeconomics of the Eurasian Economic Commission, took part in the session.

“The EAEU development as one of the economic centers of the Greater Eurasian Partnership is recorded among the priority objectives of the Declaration on Further Development of Economic Processes within the EAEU until 2030 and for the period until 2045,” Sergei Glazyev stated. He also noted the EAEU's contribution to forming the “integration framework” of the GEP, speaking about the development of interaction with the ASEAN, SCO and other structures in the region.
In terms of the GEP concept's functionality, Sergei Glazyev singled out several key areas, including the creation of a fair system of currency and financial relations, the formation of a common exchange space, joint transport infrastructure and an information security system.
