On March 29, 2022, the Center for the Study of Russian-African Relations and the Foreign Policy of African Countries of the Institute for African Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences held a conference with international participation on the topic “Cooperation between the members of the Eurasian Economic Union and African countries”. The conference took place at a difficult time, when the international situation sharply deteriorated, which required a rethinking of our country’s relations with the outside world as a whole and with important partners, including the states of Africa and our closest neighbors, the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), a member of which is also in Russia. The event, which was held in the format of a videoconference, was attended by scientists from the Institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Economics of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, employees of practical organizations, including the Eurasian Economic Commission, teachers, graduate students, and applicants. The global aspects of international relations and prospects for multilateral cooperation (1st session), bilateral cooperation between the EAEU participants and African countries (2nd session), and the positions of the main competitors of the member countries of this association in Africa (3rd session) were discussed. The speeches contained recommendations on strengthening the mutually beneficial partnership between Russia and the EAEU member countries and African states, which can be used both by the business community, as evidenced by the interest in this conference on the part of several Russian companies, and practical organizations of the EAEU participants.
