to the Initiative for a Common Economic Space from Lisbon to Vladivostok!

The Initiative sees a multi-level cooperation between the European Union (EU) and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) as the core aspect of a Common Economic Space. It was founded and is driven by businesses, business associations, and think tanks from EU and EAEU member countries and sees itself as an open circle involving all countries from Lisbon to Vladivostok.

We are committed to the vision of a common economic space. We see cooperation on practical aspects, such as harmonization of technical standards, customs and tax regulations, as a first important step into the right direction.
