Over the last few years enormous policy attention has been devoted to the development of the Russian Far East and economic engagement with the Asia Pacific. There has been keen debate over basic strategy (whether to export resources or manufactured goods and services), how it should be funded, and who should be in charge. A focus of debate has been whether to spend $30 billion on upgrading the BAM railway, to facilitate the export of coal and other raw materials to the Asia Pacific.
