Located between North-South and East-West transport corridors,
Azerbaijan is recognized as an important transport and logistics
center of the region. Cooperation with the countries of the EU in
this area has been successful so far. The international East-West,
North-South and South-West transport corridors through the country
are advantageous for both distance and time.
As Tengiz Pkhaladze, a non-resident senior fellow at the
European Center for International Political Economy (ECIPE), told
trend , Zangazur Corridor, as well as many other
significant infrastructure projects that emerge in the region,
thanks to Azerbaijan, will act as the main drivers for boosting
According to the expert, the massive reconstruction work that
Azerbaijan is carrying out in the liberated lands will offer many
new possibilities for all regional stakeholders.
“For example, the launch of such international corridors as
Zangilan and Fuzuli airports is very important for South Caucasus.
These routes do not only increase the connectivity of Azerbaijan,
but also highlight stability that the country provides today, and
open up new opportunities for all interested parties. At the same
time, the interest is growing rapidly,” he said.
Pkhaladze stressed that for all these unique economic
opportunities to occur, of course, it is necessary to achieve a
peace deal with Armenia first.
“To make Zangazur Corridor work, first of all, Azerbaijan and
Armenia have to finalize the peace agreement, and I really hope
that it will come to life soon for the benefit of the whole region.
I believe that the countries of the wider region and, most
importantly, business from these countries will pay more attention
to the South Caucasus,” he concluded.
