Ukraine will develop and deepen cooperation with the member countries of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) to implement promising projects in the field of transport in the Black Sea region – November 24, 2020 This was emphasized by the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Vladyslav Krykliy during the online meeting of the Ministers of Transport of the BSEC member states today, November 24 The
event was also attended by the European Commissioner for Transport Adina Valean, the Secretary General of the BSEC Council of Ministers, Ambassador Michael Christides, the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communications of Romania Lucian Bode and relevant ministers of other countries. “Trade between Europe and Asia remains the main driver of global import and export operations. Today we observe positive trends in the growth of Ukraine’s foreign trade with the BSEC member states. And this, in turn, requires the provision of quality cargo transportation services between our countries. To this end, Ukraine is actively working both bilaterally and to implement the agreements reached within the BSEC. And we are ready to further deepen this cooperation”, Vladislav Krykliy said. According to him, the Ministry of Infrastructure is currently actively cooperating with the European Commission in the development of the highway from Odessa through Moldova, Romania and Bulgaria, which is part of the Black Sea Ring Road and the TEN-T Trans-European Network. And in order to increase the capacity of this highway, Ukraine is extremely interested in developing further cooperation with Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey. At the same time, given the need to build a bridge over the Danube River within the framework of this project, the Ukrainian side sees the need to strengthen cooperation with Romania in determining the route of movement. Vladyslav Krykliy also announced Ukraine’s intentions to join forces to create a single platform for the exchange of electronic permits for international road transport. The Ministry is already working with Moldova and Turkey to launch such a pilot project within the BSEC. In addition, one of the priority areas of cooperation for the Ukrainian side is the development of intermodal transport in the Black Sea region with the expansion to Europe and the Baltics. Vladyslav Krykliy said that currently, together with the EBRD and IFC, the Ministry of Infrastructure is actively preparing for the concessions of the railway and ferry complex and the first and container terminals of the Black Sea Sea Port. This, in turn, will contribute to the development of intermodal transport in the region. Ukraine is also actively involved in the dialogue with Turkey to create favorable conditions for the development of combined transport between the two countries. Source: Government of Ukraine
