 Turkmenistan is open for serious expansion and deepening of trade and economic partnership with the SCO.  This was stated by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, speaking on Friday at the SCO summit in Samarkand.

 - Turkmenistan is open for serious expansion and deepening of trade and economic partnership with the SCO.  There are not only real opportunities for this, but also an objective necessity, the Turkmen leader noted.

 - The presence in our countries of a powerful resource and production base, geographical proximity, already developed competencies and experience of interaction in bilateral and multilateral formats provide today the most favorable conditions for establishing long-term sustainable ties in transport, logistics, communications, energy, creating trade and economic integration corridors  along the North-South, East-West line, - the President said.

 - Our country is ready to discuss in practice the issue of providing its territory and infrastructure in the interests of the SCO for building intercontinental and regional transit routes for the supply of goods and services.  We assign a significant role in this to the Caspian route, taking into account the presence on the Turkmen coast of a large modern multi-purpose seaport in the city of Turkmenbashi, - Serdar Berdimuhamedov added.

 The head of Turkmenistan expressed his conviction «in the expediency of the active participation of the SCO in the formation of a system of transport and transit corridors and logistics along the China-Central Asia-Caspian Sea-Black Sea line».

 - At the same time, together with the parties concerned, we are ready for joint activities to improve the efficiency of the transport corridor, which provides cargo transportation from Russian ports in the Baltic to sea terminals in the Persian Gulf, the Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean, - the President of Turkmenistan said.
