In order to achieve a sustainable rate of development, Russia’s regions need a constant influx of investment, and the battle for this is a strategic challenge facing any region, irrespective of how much financial aid it receives. The investment budget for the Belt and Road Initiative is estimated to be a colossal sum at USD 900 billion. At the Russian Investment Forum in Sochi 2018, Albert Park, Director of HKUST IEMS, joined a panel of experts to discuss regional investment coooperation as part of the Belt and Road Initiative to tackle topics such as: the role for the EAEU and Greater Eurasian Partnership with respect to investment activity in the context of the Belt and Road Initiative and the prospects of which investment through the Belt and Road Initiative can offer Russia’s regions.
