  • holding quantitative analysis and expertise to identify promising industry sectors and specific industries of the EAEU member states with the greatest export potential and cooperation potential in view of opportunities of being embedded in global value chains.

  • Assessing dependence of identified promising sectors and specific industries of the EAEU member states economies on imported components as well as developing mechanisms to enhance cooperation with foreign partners.

  • Developing measures of customs and tariff policy aimed at improving the effectiveness of the EAEU member states participation in global value chains in the context of the identified sectoral priorities and the specific chains of such participation.
