Внешнеполитический аспект транспортно-инфраструктурной ситуации в АСЕАН: новые возможности и риски для стран ЕАЭС
Russia is the largest trade and economic partner of ASEAN among the EEU countries. At the same time, the potential of mutual trade between the EAEU and ASEAN as a whole is far from being fully realized. One of the reasons for this is the lack of direct access to the sea from the rest of the EAEU, while ASEAN foreign trade is dominated by maritime transport. However, the ASEAN states often face serious О. Г. Парамонов55difficulties because of lack of modern railways as a necessary complement to the port infrastructure. Under current conditions, new opportunities are opening up for Russia both in the international market for transport services and in the implementation of infrastructure projects. This article deals with such opportunities and associated risks.
