The Project of Crating a New World Logistics. Part I. History and Economics of the Project


The article presents one of the most promising and ambitious in socio-economic, political, humanitarian aspects of the Russian scientists’ project: “United Eurasia: Trans-Eurasian Belt of RAZVITIE — Integrated Eurasian Transport System (United Eurasia: TEBR-IETS)”.

The main purpose of the project is to ensure the connectivity of the territories of the Russian Federation and their active development, first of all, the deep integrated development of Siberia, the Far East and the Arctic. The role of the project in the partnership of the progressive world community is great; the radically modernized Trans-Siberian Railway — the backbone of the project — is designed to connect the Far East, including Japan, with Western Europe and the USA in the future. This fact will make it possible to carry out on the territory of the Russian Federation and the countries included in the project, the systemic coordination of all types of transport, including river and nautical, to create a single world logistics complex of advanced technical and managerial development.

The creation of the IETS will consolidate Russian geopolitical position as a transport bridge between the world economic and civilizational regions. It will create conditions for mutually beneficial cooperation with Austria, Germany, France, Czech Republic, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, India; will open up new opportunities for cooperation with North Korea, Canada and USA in the future. It will arouse interest from the PRC in the integration of a similar Chinese project, the “Silk Road” with

the Russian Megaproject. The implementation of the Megaproject will allow Russia to offer the world a new effective version of a non-confrontational way of solving international problems, become a geo-economic and geopolitical integrator on the Euro-Asian continent, lay the foundations for the solidarity development of all civilizational centers around Russia as a civilization state, make it senseless and impossible to impose sanctions on Russia, and raise to a qualitatively new level of authority and the role of the Russian Federation in the modern world

Safety as the Essential Part of Mobile Payments’ Development

Currently, the issue of mobile payments application while forming the independent national payment system is one of the most urgent. Since the transition to mobile payment systems in Russia, as well as introduction of security systems against their break-in require certain costs, in the current economic conditions credit institutions should have sufficiently serious motivation for the new systems introduction. While business revenues are going down, increased spending for new systems introduction may seem irrational strategy. However, the positive side of mobile payments is that they will allow to reduce capital expenditures, taking into account that introduction technologies have been already developed, they should not be re-created. Further widespread use of mobile payments is inseparably connected with ensuring the required security level. The article examines the main threats that consumers could face while paying for goods and services via mobile phone.

JSC “Minskmetroproekt”: working by laws of strength, reliability, protection

The role of “Minskmetroproekt” in solving transport problems of the Belarusian capital is indisputable. The company became a pioneer of the new road in Minsk – underground. Today the Minsk subway carries more than a third of all the capital passengers, and by all standards, norms and parameters applied to facilities of this type, is recognized as one of the most comfortable and safest in the world. This is a kind of “ring” unifying man and the city. To avoid damaging the architectural ensemble of Minsk, tunneling and stations construction were carried out with a high degree of reliability and accuracy. There is one construction mode, characteristic for Minsk – station space zoning into transport and passengers areas. But it doesn’t level the stations architecture, on the contrary – it combines a variety of colors and interior plastic solutions. In his interview with the “ES” General Director of JSC “Minskmetroproekt”, “Man of the Year 2014” award winner Valery Chekanov told about unique, one-of-a-kind institute, which developed the projects for all currently existing lines of the Minsk subway, new lines are still being designed and put into operation on the basis of its projecting.

Russia and China: cooperation for the sake of development and safety

#8. Is a burden of one’s own choice is not felt?

Neither Russia, nor China don’t aspire to create any unions and the alliances directed against the third countries.

Business Aviation — a Tool for Managing Large Companies

#2. Is it reformation on the march?

Taxi is convenient, but very expensive and one can run into a carriage, driven by a migrant wit two-day driving experience. You can rent a car and drive it yourself, if you can drive and like to do it, and if you know the city in addition. But what if not? The most efficient way — to rent a car with a driver. Similar scheme we used in aviation, creating the “Jet travel club”.

Manage Your Intention

#6. Truth and force

There is a direct correlation between the effectiveness of social policies and support that the government receives from population. In case of failure to take appropriate and immediate actions we are talking about possible, above all social, destabilization of the active authority regime. All the more that the situation in Russia is really complicated.
