Transport diplomacy: Cooperation for Sustainable Diplomacy

19 February 2021

In the context of the integration of all aspects of the life of states and peoples, the transport and communication sector is recognised as an integral factor of sustainable development, directly influencing the growth of states’ economies and the quality of life of the population, stability and balance of world economic relations. In this regard, cooperation in the transport sector is a special topic on the international agenda. Being the heart of the Great Silk Road for many centuries, Turkmenistan pays great attention to this issue. This was reiterated by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov at a working meeting on the development of the transport and communication complex, held on February 6, 2021. As the head of state noted, that route was being revived in a new quality and the transport and communications sector played a special role in restoring that route. The government of the country was instructed to “continue activities for the further implementation of the transport diplomacy of the Turkmen state located at a convenient crossroads of Central Asia and Europe.”
