The Eurasian Economic Union, officially established by the relevant Treaty as an International Organization on January 1, 2015, is one of the largest markets in the world: it unites 176 million people, a combined GDP of more than 4 trillion US dollars. The Eurasian Union aims at ensuring free movement of people, services, goods and labour between its member states, which to date are: Belarus, Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation, while Armenia also joined on 2 January 2015. Kyrgyzstan is also expected to join in May 2015, after ratification of the relevant agreement that has already been signed.
The Eurasian Union that can be loosely compared to the European Union offers immense opportunities for business. Companies that do business in any of these countries will be able to have their goods and services reach within the entire common economic sphere of the Eurasian Union, that comprise 15% of the world’s landmass.
Through its activities that will include provision of information and market intelligence, and facilitation business partnerships, the GEBC aims at creating and improving opportunities in the fields of trade, energy, finance, innovation, technology and investments, to name but a few, between Greece and the Eurasian Union.
