INNOVATIVE POLICY OF EASTERN-ASIAN COUNTRIES: TOOLS AND PROSPECTS (EXAMPLE OF CHINA, JAPAN, SOUTH KOREA)
The subject of the study were some of the main trends in the innovation policies of China, South Korea and Japan and their impact on the innovative cooperation of these countries with Russia. The aim of the work was to analyze the innovation processes which have been taking place in the three leading East Asian countries, taking into account the strategic interests of the Russian Federation. Methodologically, the systemic, institutional, neoinstitutional and comparative approaches were used. Research methods: comparative analysis, structural and functional analysis, sociological analysis, observation, included observation, extrapolation. Institutional mechanisms of Russia's partnership with three East Asian countries were considered, the main results and the degree of their effectiveness were described. The necessity of shifting the emphasis of cooperation from the industrial sector to the non-material sphere (creation of information, knowledge, services) was justified. The research results are in demand in the situation of making political decisions in the innovation policy segment in the context of ensuring national security, effective international and regional policies. In the process of research, the hypothesis was confirmed that the process of world and regional development of a cooperative type is pushing modern countries to search for options for rapprochement and interaction based on innovation. A prognosis was made for the development of innovative integration between Russia and the countries of East Asia. The main obstacles to its implementation were noted. Russia, having set ambitious goals to achieve a high level of the well-being of the population and to consolidate the geopolitical role of the country as one of the leaders that determine the world political agenda, should be oriented towards the transition to an innovative socially-oriented model of development.
