evidences on cross-border areas, their characteristics, integration barriers and incentives and
policy intervention methods. Main emphasis is done on the most recent policy on regional
cooperation between the Russian Far East and the North East of China for the period 2009-
2018. The study showed that cross-border cooperation is appropriate development path for this
area and proposed in the policy initiatives correspond to initial integration stage characteristics.
Despite inability to predict the future character of cross-border interactions in this area, due to
early stage of integration relations, policy document indicated attempts to test innovation capacity
of forming region. (Less)
