In view of the new realities created by signing the Association Agreement between Georgia and the European Union, Georgia for the first time was given the opportunity to be properly involved in the processes of global economic integration. This problem can be successfully resolved through safeguarding the Euro-Asian transport-communication space – “A New Silk Road”, and in the conditions of harmonizing the country’s geo-economic interests.
It should be noted that the first test train has passed already through the Georgian section of a new Baku-Tbilisi-Kars railway line.
This section is what should become a component part of “A New Silk Road”. The construction of 180 kilometers of this railway line has been already completed, and now everything is being done for completing all works by the end of 2015. This railway line is considered as the most significant project in the South Caucasus region of the Euro-Asian transport corridor.
