Director of the Sino-Russian Economic Center: the Far East is an ideal springboard to get rid of economic dependence on Europe

26

In the Russian Far East, there are huge opportunities associated with closer Sino-Russian cooperation, as Russia's economic pivot to Asia gains a sudden boost amid tightening sanctions from the West. The accelerating movement of the Russian economy to the East is also changing the geopolitical landscape, since the formation of a multipolar world is irreversible.


The head of the Ministry for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic, Alexei Chekunkov, said that his department would make proposals to the Chinese side on the creation of a free trade zone on Heixiazi Island, Heilongjiang Province, in Northeast China. This is a border island, geographically very conveniently connecting China and Russia.

According to the minister, the island could be developed into a project similar to the Chinese-Kazakh Khorgos project, a cross-border cooperation center for duty-free trade between countries.

Also on Monday, it became known that the Russian state development corporation VEB.RF announced plans to invest in projects totaling 1 trillion rubles in the next three to four years in the Far East.

At the end of this week, China's top deputy (actually the speaker of the people's assembly) Li Zhanshu will embark on a four-country tour that includes a visit to Russia, where he will attend the Eastern Economic Forum.

The significant difference of this year's forum from the previous ones is that the majority of participants are from the countries of the Asia-Pacific region. Chen Gang, director of the Sino-Russian Center for Economic and Cultural Exchanges, said that since the border ports are closed to visitors, Chinese companies are mainly located in Russia.

Due to the uncertainty of the European environment, this is a very good opportunity to accelerate the development of the Far East and speed up the transfer of Russian trade facilities to the Asia-Pacific region

- said Chen Gang, noting that the Far East will serve as an ideal springboard to get rid of economic dependence on Europe.

In the first seven months of 2022, China's trade with Russia grew by 29 percent, which is about 6 trillion rubles on an annualized basis.

    The main thing is not to fall into economic dependence on China. The office where I have been working for 25 years has been selling office equipment and the leaders are complaining that the Chinese have already turned blood in the negotiations, they know that there is nowhere to go

        They traded mainly Chinese-made US products, of course. But parallel import does not work yet.

          And there is no escape from dependence on China.
          It remains only to make China dependent on us. And this is quite possible.

          Free Trade Zone on Heixiazi Island

          But this is in vain.
          There is such an island - a lowland in the middle of the river and continuous channels.
          That is, the place is swampy, and may well be flooded during the flood of the Amur.

        Can you name what our country needs and where it can be bought?
        China went in the direction of developing its own industry by simply copying the received (purchased, used) foreign technology. What can I say if we cannot even copy a passenger car from the sixties. Take any Russian-made moving vehicle - "manual" work with a chisel and hammer is visible everywhere.
        It got to the point that we can not provide ourselves with either "locomotives" or airplanes ...
        Russia came out on top in the world in holding forums, exhibitions, parades and biathlons.
        This policy is quite understandable - to give the people bread and circuses.
        *****
        The Chinese, returning to their rooms, roll on the floor with laughter ... Except for a few technological solutions, Russia cannot give them anything new. And they are not going to drag us to them. Fellow travelers in the confrontation with the United States in the field of nuclear weapons.

          Not only copying, but also hosting foreign productions ...
          Ours in the 90s also hoped so ....

          But they were given stimorol and milk in the volume of the domestic market: our proletarians were not ready to work for a cup of rice ...

          So you keep in mind that China has 1 billion people.

    on the establishment of a free trade zone on Heixiazi Island, Heilongjiang Province in Northeast China. This is a border island, geographically very conveniently connecting China and Russia.

    This island belongs to part of the PRC and part of the Russian Federation, lies opposite Khabarovsk. And it is called in our Big Usuri. Divided after the settlement of the border issue in the zero years.

    Dependence on Europe is certainly bad. But there are at least dozens of countries, each with its own interests, you can play on contradictions.
    It seems to me that dependence on China, controlled by the common will of Comrade Xi, is a hundred times worse. Well, I don't think China is a friendly country. It’s just that objectively, he cannot but set as a goal the subjugation of the economically weak northern neighbor

      Europe is no longer "dozens of countries" ...
      Europe is now some kind of misunderstanding, and EU countries are often directly controlled from the American embassy by no-name clerks ...

      Might not be profitable...

    It remains simply to marvel at the debility of Khrushchev, who pushed away the tormented, still weak China from himself due to an uncritical disagreement ....

          How could they not? And the conflict in Damansky? It was there that they were introduced to interesting weapons:

          Invention of engineer Denezhkin.
          Fire from the sky is not a metaphor at all. The Chinese were shot with thermobaric projectiles using Grad multiple launch rocket systems adopted by the Soviet Army in 1963. It was a combat debut, and quite impressive.

    The Chinese are on their own minds And again they are trying to sit out by the river while Russia is butting heads with the USA ..
    Also on Monday, it became known that the Russian state development corporation VEB.RF announced plans to invest in projects totaling 1 trillion rubles in the next three to four years in the Far East.

    This is all good, of course, but you need to make sure that people can get to the Far East somehow .. After all, a simple resident of the province simply won’t pull the prices for trips ..
    Now, if gasoline prices were reduced and immediately the passenger-and-freight flow would increase many times over and the prices for everything else in fact ..
    Everything is expensive there in the Far East.
    But the fact that the government is trying to do something is good .. As they say, if it suffers for a long time, something will work out ..
