The United States-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (USACC) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Azerbaijan, in partnership with the Global Chamber and the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the United States present a U.S.-Azerbaijan Logistics Conference on:
MIDDLE CORRIDOR: CONNECTING ECONOMIES THROUGH
PORTS AND AIR FREIGHT CONNECTIVITY
The Middle Corridor is an emerging transit route connecting economies from Central Asia to the South Caucasus and on into Eastern Europe. Azerbaijan’s key geographical location, coupled with well-developed logistics infrastructure and state-of-the-art port and air cargo facilities are crucial to this new opportunity for transiting goods and services between Europe and Asia.
“Middle Corridor: Connecting economies through ports and air freight connectivity” is an industry-based conference that will discuss air cargo connectivity and port development in Azerbaijan, the Central Eurasia region, and beyond. This platform will allow importers, exporters, shippers, consignees, freight forwarders, and other industry players to exchange ideas and learn from one another about how to seize this important opportunity.
