This report inaugurates our formal coverage of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU). We will, as events dictate, continue to update our analysis and aggregate forecasts for the region. We will also issue special industry reviews reflecting on how the EEU may impact different industries in terms of enhanced opportunities or increased problems. We have, or are in process of issuing separate detailed macro profiles for each of the countries now in the EEU or expected to be members. This is in addition to our Russia Macro Monthly which also updates forecasts across the CIS and Eurasia region.
