Afghanistan chosen as connector between Asia and Europe

The United Nations Economic and Social Commission and the European Union plan to undertake a major infrastructure project that involves construction of roads and railways through Afghanistan.

The project is aimed at connecting East Asia with Eastern Europe. Owed to its promising geographic location, Afghanistan has been chosen as the connector to enable greater commercial transit between Asia and Europe.

Officials of the Ministry of Public Works said plans for up to nine railroads and nine highways have already been finalized.

The project will be discussed in the upcoming 9th Euro-Asian Transport Links (EATL) conference with EU and UN officials.

Afghan government’s progress on regional connectivity through mechanisms such as Lapis Lazuli Corridor, Chabahar Port, CAREC, SAARC, RECCA, ECO, SCO, CASA-1000 and TAPI was appreciated by the international community at the London Conference.

Afghan Ministry of Commerce is expected to finalize talks with concerned countries regarding the Lapis Lazuli Corridor, which would connect Afghanistan to Europe through the Caspian Sea.
