Baku, February 16, AZERTAC
“Cargo shipment through Baku and Aktau increased. If previously thousand cars were travelling between Baku and Aktau a year, now we have the same flow in a month,” Kazakhstan’s Deputy Minister for Investment Kasymbek Jenis told Azerbaijani journalists as he visited the International Seaport Alyat.
He stressed that today Ukraine is increasing cargo shipment through Baku and Aktau.
Jenis added that mainly metallurgy and petroleum products go from the port of Aktau to Baku. “The goods are then sent to the Black Sea region. Now there are new kinds of goods and we have come to share the experience with our Azerbaijani colleagues. Moreover, the construction of Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway project is almost completed. We expect that within a year the situation in the cargo transportation will dramatically change.”
