Russia And China In Central Asia Changing Great Powers

Intro Sample...


Russia and China are very significant economic partners of Central Asian countries in the Asian region. Both powers are very influential in Central Asian states’ decision-making, especially Russia, but since the collapse of the USSR, the power roles of these countries have entirely changed. Despite some positive short-term indicators contemporary Russia is broadly an economic failure, whereas China is already a second great power in the world, but if it keeps on developing that rapidly, it will undoubtedly become a leader in economic, political and strategic spheres. Notably, meanwhile Central Asian Republics are still very dependent on Russia in the sense that to a different extent they do often consult with... View More »

In short, Kyrgyzstan should learn to be selfish and rational, but at the same time run foreign policy reasonably. Breaking up with China is simply a doom to a failure, since Chinese are going to cooperate with us, since the project of Kyrgyz-Chinese railroad is being discussed now, and it is important to note that this road would be extremely beneficial for us, we do not have a right to destroy these economic plans with China.

Beijing likely views the domestic problems of the regional states in terms equivalent to its own ethnic problems in Xinjiang or Tibet, and is more than willing to approve forceful measures to maintain “stability”. Well, I believe that Beijing has mainly economic interests in Central Asia. The fact that Chinese cheap and of poor quality consumer products have already occupied the Central Asia market reveals trade relations and economic purposes of China to sell off its goods. The fact that China has provided modest military assistance to Kyrgyzstan in 2000, when our local military proved unable to fight Islamic militants, might mean that China is very interested in stability and territorial integrity of its own borders. So, perhaps it has more extended political interests as well. Be it as it may, China is a very important economic and strategic partner for Central Asian states.

The most important findings are rather counter-intuitive: smaller firms are more successful than larger firms, and gre

    The Qing Dynasty, which lasted until 1912, was the last dynasty in China.

As China opened up to foreign trade and missionary activity, opium produced by British India was forced onto Qing China. Two Opium Wars with Britain weakened the Emperor's control. One result was the Taiping Civil War which lasted fr

    Since the start of the 20th century Russia had a vast range of problems, which had to be sorted if Russia had any ambitions to be a powerful nation.
