Few such discussion forums exist for young people, although well-known politicos, sociologists, historians and economists have international conferences of their own. Now, the Young Eurasian Political Scientists Club offers up and coming experts the opportunity to discuss urgent issues affecting the region, security and integration.
The issue of economic prospects within the EEU formed the main focus of recent discussion, urging mobilisation of resources and their efficient use, as noted by Belarusian economist Alexander Sinkevich. He tells us, “We must decide clearly what to produce and what to export, while remembering to protect our own market. Belarus has experience of import substitution and this needs to be the foundation of EEU operations. Meanwhile, we must ensure equal conditions for all participants of integration, helping shape a true single market as quickly as possible.”
A strong strategy of development is needed, with specific goals, as agreed by the young political scientists. For example, the EEU aims to generate 20 percent of global GDP and achieve a leading position on the index of human potential development. Only by setting clear objectives, can we determine how to achieve them.
