Economic Development in the Russian Far East

Study Abroad

Although a neighbor to the highly successful Pacific Asian nations of Japan, South Korea, and China, Russia's Far East has always lagged in terms of economic development because of historical, geographic, and policy challenges. Today, however, there are several ambitious projects focused on developing this massive and resource-rich Russian region. This program will critically analyze and explore first-hand the business climate in general as well many of these projects in particular -- including the free port, special economic zones, and infrastructure initiatives in both their investment attractiveness and socio-political value.
