The bilateral relationship with China is one of the key building blocks of Russia’s foreign policy strategy. Despite the volatile geopolitical environment, bilateral contacts enjoy continuous sustainable development in a number of areas. Most recently, alongside the traditional areas of collaboration such as energy and forestry, bilateral links are gaining momentum in the IT, telecommunications, media, and agro-industrial sectors. It is these fields that hold the promise of new areas of growth in Russian–Chinese relations. What might facilitate more effective cooperation in the new areas of growth? What are the challenges that Russia and China might face in this process?
