CASPIAN EUROPE FORUM
Ports at the Caspian Sea:
Competition & Cooperation at the center of international corridors
24. February 2021
The littoral countries at the Caspian Sea have ambitious plans to establish new ports, develop their current infrastructure and capacities, as the importance of international transit projects such as the One Belt-One Road, the Middle Corridor, and the International North South Transport Corridor (INSTC) are growing. By developing their logistic infrastructure, Astrakhan, Lagan, Baku, Aktau, Turkmenbashi and Anzali are trying to become major mediators in the transit of cargos between Europe and Asia. Each country has the ambition to become the main transport hub in the region and capitalize on this geostrategic advantage.
However, the decisive factor for a successful positioning of the Caspian region as a logistics hub will be to generate attractive offers for shippers and logistics companies through joint strategies of the ports, their connectivity and effective linking of existing transport corridors.
At the Caspian Europe Forum Round Table, we will discuss with experts and officials the recent developments at the ports and the challenges ahead.
