On March 16, a two-day meeting of the heads of railway departments from six states, including Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey started its work in the capital of Uzbekistan, the press office of the Ministry of Transport of the Republic of Uzbekistan reported.
The agenda focuses on the creation and promotion of the Asia-Pacific-China-Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan-Turkmenistan-Azerbaijan-Georgia-Turkey-Europe transnational multimodal transport corridor.
The transport ministers from the participating states will discuss such issues as uninterrupted freight flows on the route connecting the Asia-Pacific Region and Europe, expansion of the corridor capacity, tariff rates and timely delivery of fitting platforms (for large-capacity transport containers).
This is the fourth meeting in such a format. The above states except for Turkey held the first meeting in late 2019. Following the first meeting, the participants signed the final document. The second meeting took place in 2020, and the third meeting was held via videoconference in December last year.
