There have been visits to Mersin and Haydarpasha (both Turkey), Constanta (Romania), Rostock (Germany) and Trieste (Italy). Istanbul-based Gap Inşaat Yatirim ve Diş Ticaret A.S. has been constructing the new Turkmenbashi seaport since 2015. The new Turkmenbashi seaport on the Caspian Sea
is being developed to become one of the major ports in the region.
