The Ministry of infrastructure of Poland considers the TRANS-Caspian international transport route a promising project for cooperation with Turkmenistan both directly and through international networks, Trend reports with reference to the Ministry.
The geographical position of Turkmenistan creates a number of opportunities for cooperation with Poland, according to Polish officials.
According to the source, over the past two years, cooperation with Turkmenistan has been carried out only through the Polish company PKP LHS - one of the largest European cargo carriers.
Moreover, it does not directly cooperate with Turkmenistan in handling cargo transport from China to the European Union market, while another member of the PKP Broad Gauge Metallurgical
Railway Line group, PKP LHS, has cooperation with Turkmenistan under the agreement on international rail freight traffic.
The Ministry believes that the railway cooperation Organization plays an important role in the development of multilateral cooperation, which involves Poland and Turkmenistan, as well as Azerbaijan and other countries in Asia and the Caucasus.
This year, the growth of transport links between Poland and Turkmenistan along the TRANS-Caspian corridor determines the potential for further development of transport along this route. Despite the global economic crisis associated with the pandemic, the number of entities cooperating within the TRANS-Caspian transport route is only growing, the Ministry said.
