Bakhtadze: We Want the Major Share of Cargo Turnover Between Iran and the EU to go through our Corridor

“Georgian Railway” plans to gain numerous benefits from the cooperation with  “Deutsche Bahn”.

General Director of “Georgian Railway” considers cooperation with German rail carrier as a strategic priority, envisaging the fact that German railway and affiliated companies are the main hub of transport system.

Cooperation in cargo shipment is planned in two directions.  The first – container shipments between China and Europe via Trans-Caspian Corridor and the 2nd – opening of new corridor form the Persian Gulf to the Black Sea.

“Traditionally, the trade between Iran and the EU countries is high and we want the major share of the trade to go through Georgian corridor. Deutsche Bahn and its affiliated companies should be our partners as well “, – Mamuka Bakhtadze notes.
