The Role of Korea-Central Asia Cooperation Forum for Eurasia Initiative
Park, Joungho | March 2016
As of recent, economic integration activities, including China's ‘One Belt, One Road’ policy and Russia’s Eurasian Economic Union, are being actively implemented around the Eurasian region. In the rapidly-changing environment of international relations, the promotion of cooperation between Central Asia and Korea, located respectively in eastern and central Eurasia, has geological and geopolitical values. Central Asia sits in the middle of the Eurasian Continent, and is the heartland where the national strategies of China (One Belt, One Road), Russia (Eurasian Economic Union), and the United States (New Silk Road) intersect. Given its geo-strategic importance and economic development potential, the advancement of the cooperative relationship between Korea and Central Asian countries will contribute to opening up a new horizon in Eurasian economic cooperation in terms of transportation, logistics, energy, and trade network-building.
