Report: Economic Order in the Asia-Pacific and Russian Interests

16.03.2017

Over the past ten years, the Asia-Pacific region (APR) has been the global economy’s main center of gravity. The world’s leading non-Asian centers of power, the United States and Russia, almost simultaneously announced their turn to the Asia Pacific and proclaimed the region a main foreign policy priority. However, the region’s economic order remains unclear, and represents a concentration of diverse and often incompatible projects and regimes.

The report, written by the authors from the US, Russia and China, provides an analysis of the approaches of the US and China as two key poles in the APR to shape its economic order, and describes in detail Russia's interests in this dynamic and important region for its economic development and global role.
