At present time, a Turkmen delegation consisting of representatives of the Transport and Communications Agency under the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan is on a visit to the Astrakhan region of the Russian Federation.
About this reports newscentralasia.net.
During the negotiations, the issue of organizing a logistics center of Turkmenistan in the Astrakhan region and a car ferry service between the Turkmenbashi International Seaport and the ports of Astrakhan was discussed.
It should be noted that the foreign trade turnover between the Astrakhan region and Turkmenistan today is more than 200 million USD. This indicator is also associated with the active development of cooperation between the parties in all areas of the transport system.
A new stage in regional cooperation will be the accession of Turkmenistan to the “North-South” transport corridor, and also the creation of a ferry crossing between the ports of Olya and Turkmenbashi.
