Northeast Asia's role in the One Belt and One Road initiative: should it be upgraded to a key cooperative region from the one marginalized?
【Abstract】The Vision and Actions on Jointly Building Silk Road Economic Belt and 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road officially issued by Chinese government is a guiding document of the One Belt and One Road construction. In its content, Northeast Asia has not been incorporated into key cooperative regions of the One Belt and One Road. However, it is necessity and feasible to include the region, no matter in terms of the goal of the One Belt and One Road strategic vision or the reality of Northeast Asia. Priorities of promoting joint construction of the One Belt and One Road in Northeast Asia include pragmatically facilitating the synergy between China and the Republic of Korea (ROK) in strategies, accelerating the China-Japan-ROK Free Trade Agreement (FTA) negotiation, perfecting the Great Tumen Initiative (GTI) cooperation mechanism, and jointly participating in the One Belt and One Road construction in other regions.
