DUSHANBE, 22.12.2021 (NIAT Khovar) – The delivery of goods from Japan, Korea, Singapore and other Asian countries through Pakistan will now become more accessible. This was stated by the Minister of Transport of Tajikistan Azim Ibrohim on December 15 at the third session of the Assembly of Representatives, where he presented the Transport Agreement between the governments of Tajikistan and Pakistan for consideration by the deputies.

According to the minister, Tajikistan will have additional advantages in terms of transportation of goods.

He also explained the possibilities that the document on international road transport with Pakistan provides.

In his opinion, the main goal of the agreement is to find ways of access to seaports.

“The signed agreement opens up wide opportunities for domestic carriers to enter the ‘new geography,» he added.

“In particular, access to the ports of Karachi and Gwadar in Pakistan will facilitate multimodal transportation and connection to the China-Pakistan economic corridor,” Ibrohim said.

According to him, the agreement provides for the transportation of new goods, such as various technical equipment, spare parts and lubricants for transport from Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea.

Ibrohim stressed that this route will become the most important alternative way of transporting goods from Tajikistan itself to the countries in Southeast Asia.
