Angela Mihaela Ene

Abstract


This approach aims to highlight the European Union's long-term economic security policy.Following the signing of the Economic Agreements between the EU and Ukraine, the Republic of Moldovaand Georgia, as EU-associated countries, major economic and geostrategic interests of the European Unionare revealed, in the sense of holding the economic and geostrategic supremacy, that is an enlarged economicand functional market, just by the rules imposed by Brussels, is a tool for controlling and counteracting theeconomic pressure exerted on the world market by the three great powers, the USA, China and Russia.Even if the USA finances the three associated states in the EU, amid the consolidation of the rule of law anda solid democracy, the expected outcome of the USA foreign policy is by far an insignificant one. Weshould consider China's growing interest, which has increased its purchases of vast agricultural lands andsigning economic contracts with the Ukrainian state. Thus, we can notice a new struggle front between theeconomic axes created: the USA-EU and RUSSIA-CHINA, which at this moment, through the move madeby Russia, the annexation of Crimea, takes another turn.
