The 15th Anniversary International Transport, Transit and Logistics Exhibition (TransCaspian 2016) and the Caspian International Road Infrastructure and Public Transport Exhibition (Road&Traffic 2016) have kicked off in Baku.
Local media reports that Transport Minister Ziya Mammadov said at the opening ceremony that the road infrastructure developed in Azerbaijan recent years: “This field entered the new stage. The Silk Road has a great role in the road infrastructure. Of course, without new, modern technology, it’s impossible to imagine the development of the road infrastructure. This exhibition will introduce new technologies. Such exhibitions contribute to our country”.
The minister noted that about 75 companies, including 40 foreign companies, are attending the exhibition,
TransCaspian 2016, the 15th Anniversary International Transport, Transit and Logistics Exhibition, will take place from 11 - 13 May at Baku Expo Centre.
This year, the exhibition is marking its 15th anniversary. Over the years, the exhibition has established itself as the most important transport forum in the region, enabling innovative technologies and equipment for the transport industry to be presented, new representational offices to be opened, and new joint ventures to be created. The exhibition is considered by the industry as the year’s main event providing a true picture of the state of the transport market. Over 15 years, around 700 companies have exhibited at TransCaspian.
Since its inception, the exhibition has received official support from the Ministry of Transport of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The exhibition also receives support from the Azerbaijan Export and Investment Promotion Foundation (AZPROMO) and the National Confederation of Entrepreneurs (Employers) Organisations of the Azerbaijan Republic (ASK). TransСaspian 2016 is organised by Iteca Caspian and its partner ITE Group.
This year, the exhibition will present achievements in the transport industry and the best technologies and equipment from Azerbaijani and international companies. Sectors at the anniversary exhibition will include Rolling stock and rail infrastructure, Marine industry, Aviation, Commercial vehicles, and Transport and logistics services. A number of commercial companies and state transport bodies usually take part in the exhibition such as Azerbaijan Railways, Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company, and the State Maritime Administration (Azerbaijan).
Major transport projects such as the North-South Transport Corridor, the Trans Caspian International Transport Route, and the multimodal Viking and Kars-Tbilisi-Baku projects are currently being implemented and will help turn Azerbaijan into the main link between Europe and Asia. Such prospects contribute to the exhibition’s significance and the interest from both international and local transport companies. After all, TransCaspian 2016 is a unique opportunity to meet directors and professionals from state transport bodies in Azerbaijan and its neighbouring countries, as well as to present the latest developments in transport technologies, learn about prospective state infrastructure projects, find new sales channels, and share experience.
