In particular, the possibility of building telecommunication highways between Iran and the European Union via the Eurasian Economic Union and the possibility of using spare capacity together were mentioned. 

Karina Minasyan suggested discussing the possibility of working out common approaches to forming a digital service environment, including for digital transit corridors, which are related to transport and logistics projects, between the European Union and Iran. Karina Minasyan noted: "The formation of a Eurasian digital space is a necessary component for integration of the member states and for inclusion of the Eurasian Economic Union into large-scale processes of global digital transformation, which is the key driver of technological changes in the economies of the Eurasian Economic Union.
