New transport corridors passing through the Caspian Sea have increased the role of the "Middle Corridor", Deputy General Director of Baku International Sea Trade Port CJSC Akbar Karimov said, Trend reports.
Karimov made the remark speaking at the ‘Eurasian Knot and the growing role of the Middle Corridor during the COVID-19 pandemic’ international webinar.
These transport corridors not only provide communication between countries without access to international waters, but also play a very important role in providing access to European markets, said Karimov.
“Cooperation between corridors enhances interregional trade. Currently, the ‘Middle Corridor’ is considered the safest and shortest route between Europe and Asia. This corridor is also very important for countries without access to the ocean such as Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan, which ensures their access to global markets,” Karimov said.
