In the modern conditions of development of the world economy, there is an urgent need for countries to implement integration projects. One of the most modern large-scale megaprojects is China’s One Belt, One Way Initiative. In the framework of this work, the authors proposed a methodology for quantifying the effectiveness of expanding this initiative and increasing the number of participants. In other words, the authors of this study in their work answer the question about the effectiveness of expanding the number of participants in this project, using quantitative indicators rather than qualitative, to achieve the stated goal.

Key words: megaproject, Chinese initiative “One belt – one way”, a quantitative assessment of the effectiveness of countries’ participation in the project.
