Keynote: Tatiana Valovaya, Minister, Eurasian Economic Commission


The Eurasian Customs Union, a new integration regime in the post-Soviet space, has grown in ambition and there are plans to expand it to a Single Economic Space and an Economic Union by 2015.

This seminar will examine this development, the institutional architecture and the key driving forces. The speakers will then take stock of the new regional integration regime, consider its external implications as well as its challenges and limitations.

Attendance is by invitation only.
