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

The vision of a common economic space from Lisbon to Vladivostok has a long history since the 1950s. The Initiative believes that this vision can be turned into reality, and sees a multi-level partnership between the European Union (EU) and the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) as the core aspect of such a common economic space. Cooperation between EU and EAEU will bring enormous benefits for trade and business, especially for small and midsize companies in Europe and Eurasia.

The Initiative was founded in 2015 and is driven by businesses, business associations, and think tanks from different member countries of the EU and the EAEU.
