Spotlight: China-Russia economic cooperation enters new era

Last week, China and the Russia-led EAEU signed an agreement on trade and economic cooperation, the first major systematic arrangement ever reached between the two sides.

"Now the EAEU and China have a common legal basis for further development of cooperation in a number of areas," said Timofei Bordachev, an expert at the Valdai International Discussion Club.

Other multilateral mechanisms, such as the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and the BRICS, are also good opportunities to coordinate interests among Eurasian countries, experts said.
