The economies of the EAEU countries require highly qualified workers with new competencies who can produce competitive goods and provide quality services. For the further development of the single labor market on the territory of the association, it is necessary to introduce modern digital technologies that will allow all its participants to communicate and perform legally significant actions across borders. In addition, in the development and implementation of national policies, the exchange of experience and best practices in the field of high-tech medical care, as well as the implementation of digital initiatives and projects in the healthcare sector, is relevant. These measures will stimulate economic, social and technological development.

On December 11, 2020, the heads of state of the Eurasian Economic Union approved a document on the Strategic Directions for the Development of Eurasian Economic Integration until 2025 (Strategy-2025).
