Regional Investment Cooperation as Part of the Belt and Road Initiative
16 February 2018
09:00

In order to achieve a sustainable rate of development, Russia’s regions need a constant influx of investment, and the battle for this is a strategic challenge facing any region, irrespective of how much financial aid it receives. The investment budget for the Belt and Road Initiative is estimated to be a colossal sum — USD 900 billion. These funds will be used to finance more than 900 separate projects across 65 countries. In order to manage these investment streams, a powerful funding infrastructure has been created, enabling the foundations to be laid for a new wave of investment in the region. Such associations as the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the Greater Eurasian Partnership have been formed in order to establish connections across the continent which will facilitate trade and the implementation of all kinds of exchange between countries. The support of digital platforms has made it possible to transfer these processes to the regional level within individual countries. Direct regional trade and investment links between states are becoming a significant trend in contemporary international economic cooperation. What factors could facilitate an expansion of investment as part of the Belt and Road Initiative in Russia? What role has been envisaged for the EAEU and Greater Eurasian Partnership with respect to investment activity in the context of the Belt and Road Initiative? What prospects does investment through the Belt and Road Initiative offer Russia’s regions?
