Opening the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Marat Khusnullin greeted his Kazakhstani colleagues and noted that since the last meeting, Russia has done a lot of work to expand logistics corridors to the east.
“We approved a five-year transport roadmap, and the President also approved the development and formation of the West-East international transport and logistics route, which will run from St Petersburg to Vladivostok. I propose to discuss the joint development of logistics corridors today, in particular the Meridian route, and the expansion of railway links between the countries,” said Marat Khusnullin.
In turn, Roman Sklyar expressed gratitude for Russia’s cooperation and noted the need to expand transport cooperation.
“We can see that recently the number of flights between the two countries has doubled, the cargo flow is also increasing, so I propose to discuss upgrading checkpoints at the borders,” he said.
