China and Russia promise to stay tight

Xi Jinping arrived in Vladivostok Tuesday for the Eastern Economic Forum, hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Xi’s attendance is a signal of deepening ties between the two countries. It’s his first time to attend the forum since it was launched in 2015.

Xi and Putin held talks on Tuesday. It was a bit of a lovefest.

In an increasingly tumultuous world, Xi and Putin promised that their two countries will stay tight (Xinhua):

“Regardless of the changes in the international situation, China and Russia will unswervingly promote their ties and steadfastly safeguard world peace and stability, said the two heads of state.”That’s because the two countries have convergent interests, according to Xi (Kremlin):“We have similar or identical positions on international matters, [and] broad common interests.”“China-Russia cooperation…is gaining ever more importance against a backdrop of growing instability and unpredictability on a global scale.”One area where Xi would like to see more cooperation is on technology (Xinhua):“China and Russia should…boost joint research and development of cutting-edge science and technology, Xi said.”

Get smart: China is desperate to attract foreign talent to help in technological upgrading (see Entry #8). Russia could be an important partner on that front.

The Rise of China-Europe RailwaysMarch 6, 2018The Dawn of a New Commercial Era?For over two millennia, technology and politics have shaped trade across the Eurasian supercontinent. The compass and domesticated camels helped the “silk routes” emerge between 200 and 400 CE, and peaceful interactions between the Han and Hellenic empires allowed overland trade to flourish. A major shift occurred in the late fifteenth century, when the invention of large ocean-going vessels and new navigation methods made maritime trade more competitive. Mercantilism and competition among Europe’s colonial powers helped pull commerce to the coastlines. Since then, commerce between Asia and Europe has traveled primarily by sea.1Against this historical backdrop, new railway services between China and Europe have emerged rapidly. Just 10 years ago, regular direct freight services from China to Europe did not exist.2 Today, they connect roughly 35 Chinese…
