The South Caucasus has potential for economic and infrastructural integration. However, multilateral trade and economic arrangements seem to be associated against the interests of alleged regional powers. No wonder that trade blocs are seen as a reflection of geopolitics.
However, currently, the biggest risk for the South Caucasus region and states, ensuing from the possible outcome of the war in Ukraine, is related to the possibility of being split by the “Iron Curtain” of the new Cold/ Hybrid War. Therefore, the 23rd meeting of the PfP Consortium Study Group in March 2022 strived cementing the idea that trade is supposed to surpass the limitations of geopolitics.
