Dear friends,

As part of research on trade facilitation, I periodically refer to the analytical materials of the Eurasian Development Bank (EDB).

One can agree with the thesis that the EDB is a recognized leader in applied economic analysis of the Eurasian space. The key areas of EDB activity analytical team are macroeconomic, integration and sectoral analysis.

The following analytical materials are available on the EDB website: macroeconomic reviews and forecasts, reports and working papers, integration studies, articles and speeches.

Analytical materials of the Development Bank are available at the link.

Among the previously published the EDB materials, I would recommend paying attention to the study “EDB Integration Business Barometer”, which is presented in a report, summary and presentation (link).

Note: The Eurasian Development Bank presents the results of a survey of representatives of large and medium-sized businesses in Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan, carrying out foreign economic activity on the territory of the EAEU and the CIS region. The EDB Integration Business Barometer project was implemented jointly by the EDB Center for Integration Studies and the Eurasian Monitor International Non-Commercial Association of Research Agencies. 337 companies took part in the surveys that took place in August-September 2021. The study solves the problem of monitoring the degree of awareness of companies about Eurasian integration, their opinions and assessments about barriers and support measures in the field of foreign economic activity, as well as the wishes of business on the priorities of integration and cooperation in the EDB region of operations.
