|MOSCOW Nike Air Max 98 Womens Australia , May 31 (Xinhua) -- Roughly three months ahead of a BRICS summit to be held in China, Russian analysts saw immense potential to increase and diversify economic cooperation between Russia and China.
Vast opportunities can be created during the development of the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative and the process of Russia's import substitution industrialization, experts said, adding that closer economic ties between the two strategic partners will be mutually beneficial.
They also believe China-Russia trade should be expanded to more non-energy sectors so that bilateral economic cooperation can develop in a sustainable way.
These remarks were made at a time when BRICS countries -- Brazil, Russia, India Nike Air Max 90 Womens Australia , China and South Africa -- are busy preparing for the ninth summit of the bloc's leaders on Sept. 3-5 in Xiamen City in east China's Fujian Province.
INFRASTRUCTURE, INDUSTRIAL INVESTMENT
The development of transport facilities is one of the key problems Russia faces, given its vast territory and low quality of roads and railways.
"Chinese investment and joint projects will play a major role in the vast areas of Siberia and the Far East, as well as in other parts of Russia," said Sergei Luzyanin, director of the Far Eastern Studies Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Luzyanin pinned high hopes on the Belt and Road Initiative Nike Air Max 97 Womens Australia , which can "greatly stimulate the development of infrastructure."
To finance infrastructure construction, the BRICS New Development Bank should play a bigger role, said Yaroslav Lissovolik, chief economist of the Eurasian Development Bank.
Russia responded to Western sanctions following its annexation of Crimea in 2014 with a so-called "import substitution" policy in various sectors in a bid to boost domestic industrial production.
The process of import substitution industrialization creates opportunities for Chinese direct investment in Russia, said Vitaly Monkevich, president of the Russian-Asian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RAUIE).
"This is beneficial for both sides as Chinese businesses will achieve a higher profit rate and the ability to sell products to China Nike Air Max Womens Australia , and Russia will get investment and new jobs," said Monkevich.
According to the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, Chinese companies invested more than 100 million U.S. dollars in Russia between January and April this year.
"We see a serious interest in Russia-China cooperation from business circles of both countries," said Monkevich.
NON-ENERGY SECTOR PARTNERSHIP
Trade between China and Russia jumped 26.2 percent year on year to 24.7 billion dollars in the first four months of 2017, according to China's General Administration of Customs.
In addition to oil and gas, Russian analysts saw the possibility of expanding bilateral trade to more areas.
"RAUIE members often turn to us with requests for export of sunflower oil Nike Air Max 93 Mens Australia , honey, ice cream, confectionery and alcohol ... We see a great potential for the development of exports other than raw materials," said Monkevich.
As for space cooperation between Russia and China, Luzyanin expects joint manned space stations and joint space missions in the future.
Furthermore, Luzyanin and Lissovolik Nike Air Max 180 Mens Australia , who are also members of the Russian think tank Valdai Discussion Club, suggested Chinese and Russian programmers cooperate in ensuring cybersecurity and developing Internet-based business.
"All this together creates a new quality for the growth of Russia-China cooperation. We can deal with oil and gas and talk about diversifying cooperation at the same time," said Luzyanin.
On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin told visiting Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi that both countries should maintain the development of pragmatic cooperation.
Wang echoed Putin's appeal, saying that Russia and China should further deepen cooperation in such fields as trade and investment and explore new sources of economic growth.
ISLAMABAD, June 10 (Xinhua) -- Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani have agreed to revive the Quadrilateral Coordination Group (QCG) of Afghanistan Nike Air Max 270 Mens Australia , China, Pakistan and the United States for promotion of peace and security, the Foreign Ministry said on Saturday.
Sharif met with Ghani in Astana, Kazakhstan, on the sidelines of a Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit, which was seen as an ice-breaking meeting in view of the tense relationship between the two neighbors.
The QCG had been almost dysfunctional after a U.S. drone strike killed Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Akhtar Mansour in May last year Nike Air Max 98 Mens Australia , just three days after the member countries met in Islamabad to discuss peaceful solution to the Afghan militancy.
However, Pakistani officials believed that the killing of the Taliban chief had not only badly affected the QCG process but also had negative impact on efforts to encourage the Taliban to come to the negotiation table.
In a positive development, the Pakistani and Afghan leaders "agreed to use QCG to promote peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan," the Foreign Ministry said in Islamabad.
"The two leaders agreed to use QCG mechanism as well as bilateral channels to undertake specific actions against terror groups and to evolve, through mutual consultations, a mechanism to monitor and verify such actions Nike Air Max 90 Mens Australia ," it added.
Sharif stressed the importance of reconciliation and a politically negotiated settlement as the best solution to the Afghan conflict. In this context, he highlighted the efforts undertaken by Pakistan for facilitating an Afghan-owned and Afghan-led process, according to the ministry.
The prime minister joined Ghani in condemning the recent terror attacks, especially the wave of violence in Kabul following a truck bomber in the center of the capital city last wee
