Promotion of Moscow-Beijing contacts comes at the time of the advancement, set to revitalize and digitalize the ancient economic artery between Asia and Europe – the Silk Road. Launched by the Chinese government in 2013 with the aim of expanding China’s IT infrastructure locally and into Europe, Africa and the US. Once momentum was gained, it was incorporated into the Chinese constitution becoming part of the country’s official economic direction.
Over the past few years Moscow has seen an influx of Chinese businesses setting up Russian operations – China Construction Bank, China Investment Corporation, Agricultural Bank of China, China Union Pay, China Telecom, Aliexpress and Alibaba, Lenovo, Huawei and many others. With that, Russia has proven to be a welcome place to launch new services and projects for Chinese enterprises, opening the door to the biggest Internet market in Europe. Russia has one of the best educational along with one of the most far-reaching power and natural resource base in the world.
“Moscow has established itself as an international connectivity hub on this new ‘Silk road’ from Asia into Europe, hosting carriers that provide quick and low-latency routes from China, making it a reasonable location for Point-of-Presence installations”, – said Shamil Gabitov, Carrier Business Director of China Unicom (Russia). The digital ‘Silk road’ and fiber connectivity all come through Moscow (TEA Cables, ERMC, ERA), which makes Moscow a perfect start point for the Russian Market.
Recent legal requirements towards personal data storage in the Russian Federation should also be observed. According to the Information law, all the personal data of Russian citizens should be stored in the country. International companies, that collect, process and store such data are renting IT infrastructure and racks at the Moscow-based data centers (DC) making it a common practice. This allows to benefit from corporate IT services delivered in full compliance with local legislation.
