Prospects to interface the silk road economic belt and the Eurasian Economic Union projects

  • Andrei Vladimirovich OstrovskiiEmail author
On the Rostrum of the RAS Presidium


The task is posed to study the One Belt One Road initiative, proposed by China in 2013 and based on original Chinese documents; materials of various conferences held in China and abroad; and works by Chinese, Russian, and Western scholars. This project is primarily economic and is targeted at accelerating China’s socioeconomic development under new challenges in the global arena. These challenges include the reduction of export possibilities in the traditional markets of the United States, the European Union, and East Asia as a result of decreased global economic growth rates and the attempt of the United States to weaken China’s political and economic positions by creating two new structures—the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the Trans-Pacific Partnership. A paper on this topic was presented by A.V. Ostrovskii at a session of the RAS Presidium in April 2017.
