Uzbekistan, European Commission Discuss Middle Corridor-Framed Cooperation

(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) TASHKENT, Uzbekistan, June 14. Uzbekistan and the European Commission discussed cooperation within the framework of the Trans-Caspian International transport Corridor (Middle Corridor) coordination platform, Trend reports.

The First Deputy Minister of Transport of Uzbekistan Mamanbiy Omarov met with a delegation from the European Commission for International Cooperation.

During the meeting, the commission representatives were given a comprehensive overview of the swift reforms taking place in the realm of transport and logistics development in Uzbekistan.

The deputy minister of transport noted that the country is ready to actively participate in the European Union's initiatives to attract investments for the creation of a stable, reliable, and safe transport network infrastructure.

He also emphasized the importance of projects related to the development of regional transport corridors.

Representatives of the European Commission highlighted that the established coordination platform for the Trans-Caspian International Transport Corridor is an important step in cooperation aimed at bringing Central Asia and Europe closer together.

Meanwhile, the Middle Corridor links the container rail freight transportation networks of China and the European Union countries through Central Asia, the Caucasus, Türkiye, and Eastern Europe.

A multilateral multimodal transportation infrastructure links the ferry terminals of the Caspian and Black Seas with the railway systems of China, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Türkiye, Ukraine, and Poland.

The Middle Corridor facilitates the flow of cargo from China to Türkiye, as well as to Europe and vice versa.

Transporting cargo from China to Europe along this corridor is incredibly efficient, with an average delivery time of 20–25 days. This makes it a highly advantageous transport route.
