Keywords: Arctic, investments, infrastructure, China, Northern Sea Route, territories, sustainability, economic development.


Purpose: to explore the opportunities for Russia-China economic and investment cooperation in the High North across nine administrative territories of the Arctic Zone of Russia. Discussion: China’s investments and technologies have been increasingly attracted to the Russian Arctic, but their territorial distribution remains fragmented – gas production projects on the Yamal and Gydan peninsulas and some infrastructure projects.

It is necessary to converge the interests of the two countries in the Arctic to improve the sustainability of the economic development. Results: the authors explore the most promising projects across the territories along the NSR where investments from China could be attracted.

Discussion: The COVID-19 pandemic has had an extremely negative impact on the air passenger market. The introduction of temporary restrictive and prohibitive measures on the implementation of international air transportation reduced the international aviation traffic of the European Union by more than 80% at the end of 2020, in general, the European passenger air transportation market showed a record decline in passenger traffic by more than 70%.

The analysis of the indicator of aviation traffic can serve as the basis for forecasting the development of the European market for passenger air transportation in the context of post-crisis development. Results: A likely scenario for the development of the European market for passenger air transportation in the context of overcoming the crisis in 2020 is the strengthening of the role and influence of low-cost airlines in the structure of leading airports in Europe. At the end of 2020, the drop in aviation traffic at the leading airports in Europe exceeded 70-75%, where the share of low-cost airlines in the structure of the route network is much higher, showed lower drop rates (35-55%). In the event of a drop in passenger traffic in the period 2021-2022, and the possible bankruptcy of a number of classic airlines, European low-cost airlines can expand their route network based on the leading air transport hubs in Europe: Heathrow, Charles de Gaulle, Schiphol, Frankfurt on the Main “,” Barajas “. The results of the analysis of aviation traffic of the leading air transport hubs in Europe can be used in the development of a national concept for the development of the passenger air transportation market in Russia in the context of overcoming the 2020 crisis.
