The safety of ships and sea port facilities is discussed at a two-day webinar attended by representatives of the Agency "Turkmendenizderyayollary" ("Sea and river routes") and the State customs service of Turkmenistan. This is reported by the state news Agency of Turkmenistan.
The webinar is held within the framework of the project "Marine protection, security and environmental protection of the black sea and Caspian regions" (BCSEA), implemented by the European Maritime security Agency (EMSA) with financial support from the European Union.
The project covers the following countries: Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Turkey and Ukraine. Its purpose is to familiarize national experts in the field of Maritime communications with international practice, to bring the regulatory framework of coastal States in line with EU legislation.
Turkmenistan's favorable geographical location determines its growing status as an important transit and transport hub in Eurasia. Our country, together with foreign partners, is implementing major projects to create a combined regional and inter-regional logistics system and create interstate transit corridors linking Central Asia and Europe, the Caspian, black sea and Baltic regions, the Middle and middle East, and South and South-East Asia.
The advanced infrastructure of the Turkmenbashi International sea port is able to meet not only existing but also prospective demand with a high-quality offer. Ship traffic control in the port area, loading and unloading operations in all sections are controlled using automated systems and electronic technologies in real time. In order to preserve the ecology of the Caspian Sea, the entire project was developed in accordance with the international standard "Green port".
As the participants of the webinar emphasized, Turkmenistan's development of international cooperation in the field of Maritime transport in modern realities confirms the effectiveness of the state policy aimed at expanding economic cooperation, strengthening good-neighborly relations for the sake of universal peace, progress and prosperity.
