Uzbekistan builds a Transit Hub at its border with Afghanistan

Uzbekistan has established a transit hub at its border with the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in order to promote trade and transit ties between the two countries. The development project established in Uzbekistan’s Termez city includes a railway line and station, a Trade Center for commercial goods and roads for transporting of goods. Uzbekistan is also interested in investing over USD 500 million in the construction of a 660 km railway line from Mazar-e-Sharif to Herat Province which will connect Uzbekistan to Iran through Afghanistan. “Now most of our transit problems in Uzbekistan have been solved. Now Afghanistan’s goods can be transited to Russia and China through Uzbekistan’s Andi Jan port,” said an Afghan senior official.
