Fostering the cross-border infrastructure for sustainable development and
regional cooperation


Development of infrastructure is an important factor that allows achieving sustainable economic
growth, and giving efficient impetus to provide steady ascension of social well-being indicators
in long run. Globalization processes, supported by digital transformations, provide unique
opportunities for further development of high-end solutions. The countries with emerging
economies are interested in sustainable infrastructure development but due to their economic
backlashes, do not have the resources needed to boost and support vital infrastructure projects.
In these circumstances emergence of new kind of cross-institutional and cross-border regional
entities (international network) aimed at development of territorial cohesion and fostering
better level of cooperation within and across boarders are highly anticipated.
