A commission on cooperation in the field of tourism will be established in the framework of the Cooperation Council of Turkic-Speaking States, Secretary General of the Council Khalil Akynchy told reporters at a press conference on Friday.
In addition, he said, the meetings held during the summit discussed issues of cooperation in the areas of health, education, sports and culture as well as the establishment of the Turkic Academy.
"Alongside, transportation and economic projects along with those in the trucking industry were discussed," Akynchy said.
According to him, a truck moves from Asia to Turkey at a speed of 17 kilometres per hour, which is slow. This is caused by those long procedures that the truck has to go through at checkpoints in these countries.
"We intend to reduce these procedures to increase the speed of freight between the Turkic-speaking countries," Akynchy said.
He also noted that the scope of the Diasporas' activities is also of great interest for the member states of the Cooperation Council.
