On April 26, the Eurasian Peoples’ Assembly held a panel discussion "The Great Eurasian Partnership: from people's trust to the trust of economies" at the Central Asian International Industrial Exhibition INNOPROM.
Today, integration processes largely determine the current context for the development of the world economy.
The large territory of Eurasia, in order to facilitate logistics, trade and other economic processes, requires the creation of maximally unified regulatory systems for all spheres of economic activity, common digital and logistics platforms.
INNOPROM-2022 has chosen the identification of new vectors for the development of cooperation and strengthening business contacts between partners of the Central Asian countries as a priority.
How to make Greater Eurasia a space of cooperation and trust? Are the national and multilateral development institutions of Greater Eurasia capable of overcoming attempts at economic isolation and helping to form a common space for joint harmonious growth? What infrastructure, industrial and trade projects require the expertise and resources of the development institutions of the EAEU, SCO and other integration associations? Is it possible to combine such initiatives in the interests of the entire continent?
These and many other topical issues were put on the agenda of the panel session "The Greater Eurasian Partnership: from People's Trust to the Trust of Economies".
The panel session was attended by Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Uzbekistan Furkat Sidikov.

The economy of trust is a dialogue, it is a partnership.
