Today, the port of Aktau was visited by a large business delegation from the city of Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province (PRC), headed by the mayor of the city, Mr. Fan Wei. It consisted of members from the People’s Government, Chairman of the Board of the Lianyungang Port, Mr. Ding Rui, representatives of the port, General Director of the Chinese-Kazakhstan International Logistics Company Lianyungang, Mr. Liu Bin and other officials.
As Mr. Fan Wei said in his speech, China is very interested in cooperation with the port of Aktau, given its convenient location, as well as its significant affiliation to the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route (TMTM). Already today there are serious intentions to organize the transfer of container cargo from the port of Lianyungang through the port of Aktau to European countries, and some preparatory work is being done in this direction. It is also considering the possibility of creating in Aktau a transshipment base for distributing the supply of Chinese goods in various directions, for which there are all the prerequisites.
President of the port of Aktau Abai Turikpenbayev expressed full readiness for cooperation.
The guests had a tour of the port area and clearly showed its capabilities.
