EDB and EFSD Chief Economist Evgeny Vinokurov took part in the 11th Middle East Conference of the Valdai Discussion Club

23 February 2022

Evgeny Vinokurov was a speaker at the session “Rebuilding the Economy on a New Basis: How Russia and the Middle East Can Seize Post-Crisis Opportunities”. He shared his views on why Russia and Middle East need International North-South Transport Corridor.

The expert noted that the main advantage of the International North-South Transport Corridor over other routes is a significant reduction in the time spent on transportation. Its launch would contribute to the formation of a macro-regional transport and logistics system – the Eurasian transport framework, which will serve as the basis for the development of trade and investment partnerships within Eurasia.
