ArmInfo. For a short period of its functioning, the Eurasian Economic Union, because of the tested by a joint history of the ideas and realistic economic forecasts, laid down in the basis of the project, showed its efficiency and achieved considerable success. The director of the "Noravank" Foundation Gagik Harutyunyan stated at the annual meeting of the Eurasian Expert Club "Three years of the EAEU: achievements and prospects".
He stressed that with the modern multipolar world, in conditions of so-called "hybrid" realities, when the boundaries between military, political, information and economic confrontations practically do not exist, serious development in a single sphere is problematic enough. In this context, he said, it is obvious that improving the liberal toolkit in trade relations is a necessary, but far inadequate condition for the desired growth and integration of the economies of the EAEU countries. In particular, the provision of economic competitiveness in the conditions of the fourth industrial revolution is possible only with the formation of modern multidisciplinary scientific and technological structures (including humanitarian ones) that play the role of basic critical infrastructures that will predetermine not only the development of the economy but also the quality of the decisions made: The reason for the existing state of affairs in the EAEU is precisely the low level of the scientific component in the decisions made and the so-called measure The style of work. And this is a continuation of the thinking of the 90s, when it seemed to many that if liberal economic instruments dominate, then all problems will be solved. The purely market mechanism used by the private sector is not able to provide solutions to the problems facing the economy. State intervention and new measures of state regulation in the sphere of science and technology, widely used in the US and EU, are necessary," he said. Proceeding from these realities, Harutyunyan stated, the issue of creating a database of relevant scientific and technological resources of the EAEU countries and coordinating their activities through state orders is extremely actual. The development and use of such a mechanism of interaction in the scientific and technological sphere will lead to a synergetic effect for the growth of the economies of the EEC countries and, consequently, to the intensification of integration processes.
