Abstract:

Under regional development strategies such as the construction of China—Mongolia—Russia Economic Corridor, the revitalization of Northeast China and the development of Russian Far East and Baikal region, strengthening coordination mechanism study between Northeast China and Russian Far East and Baikal region is of great significance to promote the mutual development of the above regions. This paper comprehensively evaluates the economic development level of Northeast China and Russian Far East and Baikal Region. It is concluded that the economic aggregate level, industrialization level, and infrastructure level of Northeast China is much higher than that of Russian Far East and Baikal Region. However, the degree of opening—up and economic growth potential is lower than that of Russian Far East and Baikal Region. Based on this, the current study deeply analyzed the coordination of Northeast China and Russian Far East and Baikal region in the aspects of economic development demand, resource advantage, production capacity demand, and regional development strategies. It is found that the economic development demand, resource advantage, production capacity demand, and regional development strategies are highly coordinated. Strengthening cooperation between Northeast China and Russian Far East and Baikal region will not only alleviate the problems of economic downturn, resource exhaustion, and production overcapacity in Northeast China, promote its economic recovery, but also greatly promote the economic development of Russian Far East and Baikal region. Then, six cooperation priorities between Northeast China and Russian Far East and Baikal region including the interconnectivity of transportation infrastructure, energy and mineral resources cooperation, ports construction, superior productivity cooperation, agricultural cooperation, and labor service cooperation are proposed. This study will provide scientific support and theoretical guidance for the practical cooperation between Northeast China and Russian Far East and Baikal region.
