Dialogue with the West would be easier to start using the platform of the Eurasian economic Union (EEU), said Wednesday a member of the Board (Minister) for integration and macroeconomics of the Eurasian economic Commission (EEC) Tatiana Valovaya.

Gross noted that relations between the EU and the EEU is very complicated, and called the EU the elder brother of the EEU, «the steps which we are trying to follow, to be as close as possible to him and repeat after him, but not to be absolutely identical.»

«I personally think we need to start a dialogue between the EU and the EEU. We are very close intellectually and economically,» said gross in a master class in Vienna.

According to her, it is important to speak to the experts, the political establishment, non-governmental organizations, because often there is no dialogue due to the large number of political stereotypes.

«I think that to start a dialogue with the West would be easier with the use of the platform of the EAEU, because we have no political dimension. We will need many years to reach a political agreement if we do not agree on Economics. You need to start with the economy,» concluded gross.
