Abstract The article is devoted to an urgent problem – the practice of utilization of the border location potential for the sustainable regional development. The interests of various groups of actors were taken into account analyzing the potential of the border location utilization. The methodology was tested on the example of the Amur Region, which has the longest border with China. The analysis revealed a significant underutilization of the border location potential. A significant change in the situation requires the implementation of actions at the federal and regional levels aimed at creating conditions for more efficient exploitation of the potential inherent in the border location of the region.
