Throughout history, Russia and the EU have always been the key players in the region. However, even though both sides have a massive historical and geographical background, there is still no effective model of RU-EU integration. Furthermore, the power and wealth centers are rapidly moving towards APEC these days, which is a matter of crucial importance for the partners, as Europe loses its positions. The paper includes the number of suggestions about the RU-EU integration, with an emphasis on: previous integration experience, creation of institutional basis, synchronizing the standardization systems, innovation and scientific researches coordination. Moreover, the work also contains the list of possible measures in the fields of energetic trade, CIS policies, with the in-depth analysis of reasons, why the integration is essential for both the Russian Federation and the European Union.

Global financial and economic recession had negatively influenced the dynamic of the international trade in 2008-2012. The post-crisis period of global market development can be described by the tendency of growing international trade flows. However, according to many experts, to ensure this tendency, the international trade policy within the frame of the WTO should be changed. The paper includes the analysis of current market of the EU-CIS trade, describes the main tendencies of its post-crisis development and major approaches and tools to ensure sustainability of such development. The analysis involved main exporting and importing countries for each analyzed product group. Sub-goals include an overview of the WTO threats and opportunities for Russian agriculture and trade with agricultural products globally, as well as comparison of main consequences of the WTO accession for the CIS countries, such as Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Kyrgyzstan, Georgia and Moldova. This is also related to the state support of agricultural production in Russia and CIS and its influence on volumes, directions, structure and effectiveness of international trade with agricultural products.

The European Union has passed a complicated period. Its economy lags not only behind its own development goals, but in many developing indicators, it lags well behind the results achieved by its economic partners and competitors, the USA and Japan. Due to the lower competitiveness in the international market environment there are growing problems in the domestic labour market. For a long time, many EU countries demonstrated relatively high unemployment leading subsequently to weakening the income situation of households and consequently to social tensions in society. The labor market situations of young graduates and also people approaching retirement age and seniors are particularly worrying. In the context of such arguments the strategy of perspective development of the European Union 2020 known as the EUROPE 2020 strategy was born. Its essence is the formulation of objectives and procedures to enable to “build in the area of the EU the strongest and most effective economic grouping of the world, able to absorb and eliminate negative stimuli from the external market environment in order to protect the quality of life of its inhabitants.“ According to J. Barroso, Europe 2020 is “the strategy for growth for the future decades, which must ensure building the European Union as an area of knowledge based, constantly growing and inclusively functioning economy“. The paper confronts the EU strategic objectives of 2020 with the current economic and social conditions under the EU and Slovakia´s environment as a precondition for their successful fulfillment. The situation in the current Slovak labour market is used as a pointer to the neglected national labour policy tools, which could create significant barriers in realization of the EU 2020 goals. The initially presented data will be used for building the econometric model enabling the in-depth analysis of relation between the explanatory variables and the newly generated economic and social parameters in the EU and Slovakia.
