Countries of Eurasia including Russia and Central Asia may explore creating a common digital platform for the exchange of technological solutions, patents, and innovative ideas between the Eurasian countries. India, a leader in the digital world, may play a key part in this process.

The idea was mooted by Kazakhstan's Prime Minister Alikhan last week (February 2) at the plenary session of the Digital Almaty 2024 Forum. The Indian Envoy to Kazakhstan also addressed the Forum.

The Forum gathered over 200 government officials, international experts, industry leaders, and top innovators to address the emerging prospects for digital cooperation and put forward new collaborative ideas of the Eurasian countries.

Smailov called on the Eurasian states to pool efforts in developing artificial intelligence (AI) and a respective infrastructure for data processing and analysis. Kazakhstan, according to him, is ready to share its best practices and experience. “This will improve our interaction and provide access to the latest technologies for entrepreneurs and researchers in our region. I’m confident that joint efforts will deepen mutually beneficial partnership, contributing to technological development and the transition to the X industry,” he said.

Prior to the session, speakers of the forum, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko, Uzbek Prime Minister Abdulla Aripov, Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Kyrgyz Republic Adylbek Kassymaliyev, and Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) Chairman Bakytzhan Sagintayev, attended the exhibition on Kazakhstan’s digital achievements. Over 300 Kazakh and international IT-companies, as well as government agencies presented their projects, including GovTech, AgroTech, Industry 4.0, ESG, and Smart City.

A newly developed unified platform with a one-window principle for investors and subsoil users ( was showcased. The project will facilitate and speed up the process of obtaining licenses for exploration and mining of minerals. Potential investors will be provided with a complete picture of the requested site, its infrastructure, and reports on geological study of the territory.

The EAEU trade turnover has doubled from 2015 to 2022, reaching $85 billion. The four freedoms of movement of goods, services, capital and workforce, which were agreed between the member states, remain the baseline for economic development of the EAEU nations.

“The EAEU is located at the crossroads of East and West, North and South, and it has always been a competitive advantage of our region. Major infrastructure projects have been launched, such as the logistics center in Lianyungang, the Khorgos dry port, the Western Europe – Western China transit highway, the railway corridor from China to Iran, the modernization of the Caspian sea ports Kuryk and Aktau,” the Kazakh PM said.
