President Ilham Aliyev: Azerbaijan to become a transport and logistics center


May 14, Fineko/ Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev has participated in the ceremony of opening of the Baku International Sea Trade Port Complex.

During the opening the country’s leader stated that work on creation of transport corridor North-South in the territory of Azerbaijan are under completion.

"Thus, the roads from North to South and from South to North pass and will pass through the territory of Azerbaijan. We’ve allocated additional financing for completion of North-South transport corridor, and I am confident that this railway line will be put into operation in the next few years. Thus, Azerbaijan, which does not have access to the open sea in the Eurasian space, will become a transport and logistics center," President Aliyev said.

He added that work on commissioning of the South-West transport corridor, which is also a significant project, are also underway.
