Abstract

The major objective of the study was to assist CAR in identifying main present and future land transport routes from Central Asia to sea ports of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Pakistan as well as of China. The identification of problems in land transport facilitation as well as of the measures to improve it constitutes another important part of the study. The study has been carried out in close cooperation with ECO secretariat and with the active participation of the countries concerned.

The study report consists of five chapters, namely: Introduction; Central Asian Republics and their new transport demands; Land transport routes from Central Asia to sea ports of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Pakistan, and those in China in the East; Comparison of the land transport routes to the sea ports in the South and the East; Land transport border-crossing facilitation; Major conclusions and recommendations. Annexes attached to the report include: list of countries and organizations visited; railway and road technical standards and data; land transport overview by countries; container terminals in Central Asia; road and rail border-crossings between CAR and Afghanistan, Islamic Republic of Iran and China; list of transit and transport agreements; list of references. It is hoped that results of the study would provide useful guidelines for all the countries' authorities concerned in the development of efficient and reliable land transport routes from land-locked Central Asian Republics to the sea ports in the South and the East.
