XXVIII CCTT Plenary Meeting in Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan traditionally occupies a special position in the center of the Eurasian continent, playing the role of a transit bridge between Asia and Europe. Today, air, rail and road routes pass through the territory of Kazakhstan, contributing to the development of transit freight traffic in China-Europe-China. The annual growth of Eurasian transit railway transportation is provided by the development of industrial centers in the west of China, sending their products by rail through the territory of the CIS countries with further access to the "Trans-Siberian Railway", where Kazakhstan is the main window for Chinese goods.
Last year, NC Kazakhstan Railways (NC KTZ), CCTT Standing Member, hosted the next annual CCTT Plenary meeting in 2019. In the course of the meeting, issues related to freight traffic and prospects for the development of the Trans-Siberian Railway corridor, as well as measures to improve the efficiency of container transportation in the context of global competition, will be considered. Plenipotentiary representatives of government ministries and agencies, railway and shipping companies of the CIS, Baltic States, Europe and Asia, seaports and companies involved in rail and sea transportation are invited to discuss the issues. More than 250 delegates from 30 countries will take part in the meeting.
Traditionally, the most influential international transport organizations will take part in the meeting: the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), United Nations ESCAP (UNESCAP), Organization for Cooperation between Railways (OSJD), International Union of Railways (UIC), International Committee on Railway Transport (CIT), International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA).
Decisions that will be taken during the work of the next XXVIII Plenary Session of the CCTT will determine the tasks of the CCTT for the next year in terms of increasing the competitiveness of the Trans-Siberian route, development of information technologies in transport and harmonization of international transport law.
