"Today, Azerbaijan is one of the important transport and logistics centers of Eurasia," said President Ilham Aliyev said at the VI Summit of the Caspian littoral states in Ashgabat on June 29, APA reports.

The head of state said that our country plays an important role in the development of East-West and North-South international transport corridors: “We strive for the efficient use of the Trans-Caspian international transport route. This route will allow using the transport potential of the Caspian littoral states to the maximum extent and will create conditions for the implementation of new projects on the development of transport infrastructure. We observe an annual increase in freight traffic on the East-West and North-South routes through Azerbaijan. The volume of transit cargo from the New Alat International Sea Trade Port is growing. The construction and commissioning of this port was another important contribution of Azerbaijan to the development of transport and logistics infrastructure in the Caspian Sea."
