- We are finishing the construction of our section of highway "Western Europe – Western China", from the borders of China to Russia, stretching 2700 kilometers this year. I will ask Dmitry Medvedev continue to keep under control the creation of a transport corridor from Aktyubinsk to Kazan, St. Petersburg and further in Europe. Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan can participate in the creation of transport corridors.
The second line of the Silk Road will go through Russia, it is expected that the flow of goods from the borders of China to the borders of Europe from the current 10 million tonnes will reach 50 million tons. Our task – to seize these goods and direct through our territory. Moreover, the experts found that the sea freight is 45 days, and on the railroad – 15 days. I think there is a direct benefit.
