On September 6, 2017, the Valdai Discussion Club and Russia 24 Channel will hold TV debates, titled "Russia’s Pivot to the East: Outcomes and New Goals".
‘Russia’s Turn to the East’ has taken place. This is true both in an international respect - both political and economic – and, more importantly, internally, with measures for the development of Siberia and the Russian Far East, with the creation of the conditions for integrating them with the Asian and European markets. At the same time, Russia is diversifying its links with Asia – the number of highly important partners with which it is strengthening its relations already includes a large group of countries – China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Vietnam. In a changing global environment, it is vital for Russia to build cooperation with its Asian partners. It is equally important that leading European, and perhaps also American players, should be ‘hitched’ to cooperative relationships between Russia, Asia, and Eurasia, both on a state and on a corporate level.
