Integration capacity of Russia's far east in multipolar world

The article offers to discuss the topical issues of areas and opportunities for development of the Far East of Russia in multipolar world. Today, multipolarity is a characteristic feature of globalization. The author considers the integration with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region as an opportunity to mitigate the negative demographic processes which are manifested in ongoing out-migration. Moreover, the migration outflow is five sixth. The Russian government proclaimed 'a turn to the East" in its foreign policy. The article aims at identifying new, not based on natural resources use, factors of the Far East's integration into the Asia-Pacific region. The study shows that a relatively small population, poor transport infrastructure and lack of requirements made by a large part of population for the quality of goods and services, as well as the devaluation of the national currency, would not be the factors contributing to a great demand for the goods from the Asia-Pacific countries. It is therefore necessary to search for the integration capacity of the Russian Far East elsewhere. By summarizing scientific evidence, the author highlights that they could be natural recreational resources and participation in resolving global, including environmental, challenges. © 2018 The Authors.
