Today, the region of Central and Southeast Asia is becoming an extensive platform for close economic cooperation between the countries, and also seeks to create the prerequisites for the implementation of its economic programs and strategies, ”said Sergey Kanavsky, Executive Secretary of the SCO Business Council.

On October 18, the VII Forum of China-Central Asia Cooperation in Nanning City ended. The main topic of the forum was “Discussion of cooperation on connecting land and sea, stimulating development through innovation”. The forum was attended by representatives of various countries of Central Asia and ASEAN countries, as well as the SCO Secretary General Vladimir Norov.

“The forum in Nanning is relevant and involves the organization of broad economic cooperation in the space of Central Asia, including in the SCO space,” the expert noted.

“Today, countries, representatives of business and government agencies, are striving to move to more realistic“ earthly ”, effective projects, and the forum in the broad sense is the implementation of such projects and meetings,” the expert emphasized.

Kanavsky also noted the main trends in the development of states in the SCO space:

"The Chinese leadership purposefully seeks to implement economic cooperation with the SCO countries, taking into account the country's national interests."

“Unlike in previous years, when implementing its projects today, the Chinese side is very attentive to the interests of its partners, in particular, the SCO partners. China’s policy in this regard is becoming more flexible and mutually beneficial”, said Kanavsky.

According to the expert: “many Chinese regions are a transit point for access to the countries of Southeast Asia. In this regard, international organizations such as the SCO and ASEAN will be able, through the implementation of economic projects, to find common ground for mutually beneficial economic cooperation”.

In conclusion, Kanavsky assessed the role of women in the development of cooperation between the SCO member countries:

“Today this is a very popular trend - Development of Women's Entrepreneurship, but, from the point of view of the representative of the SCO Business Council, I can say that it makes no difference to us who is an entrepreneur, the main thing is to build effective economic relations”.
