Astana (Kazakhstan), May 1: EurAsEC Secretary General and well known politician-diplomat Tair Mansurov will release a book titled “Eurasian project of Nursultan Nazarbayev” on May 22.

According to a press release forwarded by the Embassy of Kazakhstan in New Delhi, the book to mark the 20th anniversary of the Eurasian project (1994-2014), was published in March this year.

The book, which will be presented on the sidelines of the VII Astana Economic Forum, comprehensively describes the implementation of the project for the formation of a Eurasian Union of States as proposed by President Nursultan Nazarbayev in March 1994 during a speech at the Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov.

According to the press release, Mansurov highlights the historical role of the Eurasian project as a key tool for effective economic and social development, which opens new opportunities and prospects for the post-Soviet countries.

The publication is addressed to a wide circle of readers, scientists, specialists in public administration and international relations, as well as anyone interested in modern history.

The book sets forth in detail issues of the philosophy of Eurasianism, considers the main aspects of this global project of Nursultan Nazarbayev, analyzes the main stages of economic integration of post-Soviet states which have become, in essence, the embodiment of this project: establishment of the Eurasian Economic Community, the Customs Union and the Common Economic Space and, in the long view, the Eurasian Economic Union.

Promotion of the Eurasian integration has become a key goal of President Nazarbayev, who has managed to convince other leaders of the region such as Russian President Vladimir Putin and other leaders of post-Soviet states of the effectiveness of the integration-related ideas.

The move to create a Eurasian Union is being seen as reflecting the objective logic of the post-Soviet space and the will of people to integrate. (ANI)
