Azerbaijan is already a regional transport hub for two
reasons - the coronavirus pandemic and the situation in Ukraine,
said Associate Professor of the Higher School of Security and
Economics, a member of the Association of Industrial Capital in
Bulgaria Teodor Detchev at an international conference held under
the motto 'Along the Middle Corridor: Geopolitics, Security and
Economics' in Baku at ADA University, trend reports.
'The first reason is the coronavirus pandemic, as a
result of which the value of the Aktau-Baku and Turkmenbashi-Baku
routes increased. The second reason is the situation in Ukraine,
which has caused the North Route to simply not be used anymore
since the exit of ships from Russian ports is not operated by
anyone. Therefore, cargo flow was redirected to Azerbaijan. In this
situation, the Azerbaijani leadership reacted very wisely and
adequately to these changes,' said Detchev.
He noted that the East-West Corridor, which is also
recognized as the Middle Route, crosses with the North-South
Corridor, and this already makes Azerbaijan a transport hub.
