Basic framework and approach of cooperation between China’s Silk Road Economic Belt and Eurasian Economic Union
Northeast Asia Forum,2016,Vol 25,No. 04
The Silk Road Economic Belt initiative of China is a cooperation conception of connecting regional economy of Eurasia. The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) lies in the hinterland of Eurasia, which served as a link and bridge between East Asian economic circle and that of the Europe. The cooperation between the two will be the engine of development of the Eurasia regional economy. The whole framework of cooperation needs principles such as open and inclusive, market-orienting, equality and mutual reciprocity as well as cooperation and win-win. These principles should be observed by all parties. The whole framework of cooperation needs the establishment of a mechanism, in which China and the governments as well as enterprises of the EAEU are linked at multiple levels. The cooperation also needs to be optimized in areas, such as infrastructure, interconnection, production capacity, and finance. As regard to the approach, we should positively conduct dialogue and cooperation with the EAEU, constructively develop partnership with Russia, and make full use of the platform of Shanghai Cooperation Organization. The final goal of the cooperation is making a new cooperative model of regional economic cooperation by the cooperation between China’s Silk Road Economic Belt and the EAEU.
Connectivity and construction of Asian-European Development Community within the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative
Northeast Asia Forum,2017,Vol 26,No. 04
This paper proposed the concept of “Asian-European Development Community.” Connectivity seems to be at the lower end of the Belt and Road Initiative, but it is indeed of the most practical and theoretical significance, which makes it the key to realizing the Asian-European Development Community. Connectivity is in the core and priority of the Belt and Road Initiative. Meanwhile, it serves as the basis and important content of developing “Xi Jinping model,” which to some extent represents the exploration and practice of the development path by the BRICS and other developing countries, and it proves to be effective. Connectivity is the starting point for Asian-European BRICS countries (China, Russia and India) to conduct Asian-European cooperation and also offers the point cut for the integration of the Belt and Road, Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). Connectivity serves both as the method and the guarantee to realize Asian-European Development Community. China is an Asian-European country with strong economic and technological strength, which provides strong support for Asian-European connectivity. With the shift of world economic and political gravity to Asia, China would shoulder responsibilities for human development. Realizing the Asian-European Development Community by connectivity under the framework of the Belt and Road Initiative is the crucial step of historical significance.

The vast majority of countries along the Belt and Road belong to low- and middle-income countries and the main challenge facing them is how to realize development. East Asia and China have achieved industrialization by relying on export-oriented initiative, but in the next period, the growth of international trade will be significantly lower than that of GDP. Coupled with the idea of these developed countries against the trend of globalization, global development needs new ideas. China and the countries along the Belt and Road can promote the new type of globalization with industrialization focusing on the infrastructure construction and the manufacturing industry and the cooperation with developing countries as main content. China has the world’s leading manufacturing trade capacity as the eastern region has formed a rich economic belt twice the economic scale of the US after the Second World War. Strategically, China is an advocate of the principle of consultation, sharing and co-building. Therefore, the Belt and Road Initiative serves as a deep driving force. Around 2030, 2.4 billion people in low- and middle-income countries along the Belt and Road are expected to become middle- and high-income people, while 1.4 billion people in China will become high-income people. While the increasingly rich China does pose a major challenge to the US, the Belt and Road Initiative has also created opportunities for cooperation and mutual benefits between the two countries. Therefore, China should make an overall planning for the Belt and Road Initiative and the new type of relationship among the major countries so as to well safeguard China’s national interests.
