11 In May 1993 during the Brussels Conference the European Union initiated a programme on the development of the Transport Corridor Europe – Caucasus – Asia (TRACECA)*. On 8 September, 1998 at the Summit in Baku thirteen countries signed the Basic Multilateral Agreement (TRACECA MLA), hence expressing their desire to develop economic relation, trade and transport communications in the regions of Europe, the Black Sea, the Caucasus, the Caspian Sea and Asia. The MLA was signed by Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Georgia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Romania, Tajikistan, Turkey, Ukraine, Uzbekistan. Lithuania is an observer. Afghanistan (in 2003) and Pakistan (in 2004) officially applied for TRACECA MLA full membership. Turkmenistan is a member of EU TRACECA Programme since Basic Multilateral Agreement – the legal basis * TRACECA is ambitious EU Regional Programme under which since 1993 up to now were completed more than 65 Technical Assistance and Investment Projects with total budget more than 160 Mln EURO.

12 Useful Links International Transport Corridor Europe-Caucasus-Asia New Silk Road (The TRACECA Corridor) TRACECA is a complex multi-modal transport system which aims to develop economic and trade relations and transportation links between countries and regions that is a significant contribution to the revival of one of the most famous historical routes of the Silk road. Old Silk Road - (around 200B/C)

13 TRACECA border crossing points in Turkmenistan: Turgundi, Andkhoy, Seraks; Georgian Ports (Poti and Batumi) km TO or FROM EUROPE and Delivery Time days Constanta (Romania) and Varna (Bulgaria) ports

14 Significant geo-strategic location of the Me3mbers of EC TRECECA Programme* and MLA Parties** with respect to inter-regional trade routes and transport communications *Turkmenistan is member of EC TRACECA Programme, but not signatory Party of TRACECA MLA; **In 2003 Afghanistan and 2005 Pakistan officially were applied for TRACECA MLA full membership;

22 Steps forward for efficient integration of Turkmenistan transport system into TRACECA Corridor and its network 1.Accession of Turkmenistan to the TRACECA “Basic Multi-lateral Agreement on International Transport for Development of the Europe-Caucasus-Asia Corridor” (TRACECA MLA), in order to obtain fully mutual benefits from regional cooperation and facilitation of transit between Europe and Central Asia via TRACECA Corridor; 2.Rehabilitation of Railway connection Serketabad-Tourgundi; 3.Completion of Transport Missing Links in connection with Afghanistan and Iran with TRACEACA transport network (Turgundi-Herat and Atamyrat-Aqina- Andkhoy-Shibergh ); 4.Application of favourable condition for transit transportation of goods to/from Afghanistan via TRACECA Corridor; 22
