Создание общей инфраструктуры Евразии: повестка для Евразийского экономического союза
The paper focuses on the development trends of the transport infrastructure of Eurasia in the context of the economic and
political integration of the countries at this continent. Leading states of the Asia-Pacific region (APR) made proposals on
large-scale infrastructure projects in the Eurasian space after financial crisis 2008–2009. Russia is extremely interested
in integrating into these initiatives, but faces a number of difficulties. Some of them are connected with the peculiarities of
regulation of transport issues within the framework of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The article analyzes Russia’s current infrastructure development dialogue with the APR states, including the initiative
of coordination of the Eurasian Economic Union and the Silk Road Economic Belt. The authors examine main Eurasian
infrastructure projects interesting for complex EEU infrastructure development as well as the main challenges and opportunities
for Russia arising in the framework of the interaction of the EEU and the APR countries in the field of infrastructure.
The authors conclude that integration of Russia into Eurasian transport and logistics initiatives requires the coordination
of the transport agenda with trade and investment regulation. This coordination suggests close cooperation with the
Eurasian Economic Commission, and in the long term – even the transfer of competencies related to the development of the
EAEU infrastructure agenda to the supranational level.
