As is well known there is a real great interest in the World to China’s «One Belt One Road» (OBOR), initiative or as is also was cold «Silk Road Economic Belt». At the same time the projected provoked quite strong resistance in some kea countries that are trying to compete it now in different ways. When we try to deliberate the abovementioned problem we naturally consider China’s «One Belt One Road» (OBOR), backed by Russia Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and Mongolian conception of Great Steppe or (Tea) way. Past year demonstrated three states efforts to further develop the conceptions and to find the best practical methods to make them mutually reconcile compatible and consistent with each other. Important deals were done including sending from China to Europe test trains by different routes.

There were both successes and difficulties, theoretical, practical development and new obstacles, challenges appearance.

Taking in mind first of all the OBOR as the most grand potentially global design we need to distinguish internal and external issues pressure. Sure the OBOR Initiative, is a huge design aimed at bringing greater development and connectivity to the countries of Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. The New Silk Road Initiative involves large-scale Chinese investment in infrastructure projects (according some Chinese Academy of Social Sciences representatives estimate - up to $6 trillion) across Central, South, and Southeast Asia, including roads, rail, ports, pipelines, logistics, telecoms, IT, and industrial capacity.
