As part of the Government Roadmap construction of a logistics terminal in the port Lianyungang will be started in June 2014, the chairman of the Transport Control Committee of the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Kazakhstan Asset Asavbayev said at the CCS media briefing.
“Another priority project is the construction of the terminal in the port of Lianyungang in China before July 1, 2014. This project is implemented jointly with JSC "NC KTZ" and "Lianyungang port company", A. Asavbayev told.
According to him, the Chinese port of Lianyungang was selected due to strategic location in terms of export and transit of goods, including in the direction of Europe.
"As you know, Lianyungang is included in one of the 25 largest ports in the world. The main purpose of the terminal is the possibility of handling and transshipment of Kazakhstan’s transit goods, departure from Southeast Asia and Australia with a full package of high quality services for all modes of transport carriers in export-import and transit traffic," A. Asavbaev told.
He noted that the actual construction of the terminal is planned at the end of the second quarter of 2014.
In addition, the ministry will study the issue of the construction of additional checkpoints on the border with China in connection with the commissioning of Almaty-Khorgos section of "Western Europe-Western China" international corridor, which will be completed in 2015.
"The above priority measures in the field of infrastructure will help ensure economic growth and support the real economy, implement a package of measures in the framework of economic reforms on expansion of the private sector and attracting new investment to meet the growing need for quality and affordable transport services and, overall, in the long term get big revenues from transit," he concluded.
