Turkmenistan is open to expanding trade and economic partnership with the SCO and there are not only real opportunities for this, but also an objective need, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov said at a meeting of the Council of Heads of SCO member states in an expanded format, where the Turkmen leader took part as an honorary guest.
The Head of State stated that Turkmenistan is ready to specifically discuss the issue of providing its territory and infrastructure in the interests of the SCO for building intercontinental and regional transit routes for the supply of goods and services. He also drew the attention of colleagues to the Caspian route and the possibilities of the Turkmenbashi seaport.
At the same time, the SCO can play an active role in the formation of a system of transport and transit corridors and logistics along the China-Central Asia – Caspian Sea–Black Sea line.
At the same time, Serdar Berdimuhamedov declared Turkmenistan's readiness to work together to improve the efficiency of the transport corridor providing cargo transportation from Russian ports in the Baltic to sea terminals in the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean.
