Eurasia Space: Debate at SPIEF 2018 with Peter Lavelle

Eurasia, uniting the East and the West, enjoys a unique geoeconomic position. It is widely believed that Eurasian economies will become the next growth engine for the global economy, advancing economic cooperation between Europe, Northeast Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. In order to facilitate logistics, trade, and related economic processes, Eurasia’s size demands the creation of unified regulatory systems for economic activities and the establishment of common digital and logistics platforms. Integration processes on the Eurasian continent could therefore have a major impact on the growth trajectory of the global economy. In the present context, how can ‘Greater Eurasia’, stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific, become a space for collaboration? What might serve as the key drivers for accelerated Eurasian economic integration, and what are the main areas of common interest? What are the key pros and cons of integration as seen by partners in the East and the West, and what benefits have the existing integration processes offered Eurasian economies? What is their role in advancing integration, and what is the strategic potential of multilateral, trans-Eurasian economic cooperation?
