The major factor of attractive geostrategic position of
Uzbekistan is presence of the advanced system of transport communications. Now
the transport system of the country practically satisfies internal needs(requirements)
The Republic has the highest in the Central Asia density of networks railway
and highways. Extent of railways exceeds 6,7 thousand kms, and
many roads are electrified. Over 80 % of all highways have a
firm covering. A prevailing part of highways in republic are roads
of the international and state value with the advanced types of coverings.
The existing network of railway and automobile transport communications
not only reliably connects among themselves most remote areas and settlements
of republic, provides an exit in the international transport systems,
but also provides wide access to the basic sources natural and a
¿¡ÑÓá½ý¡«-source of raw materials of the country.
Uzbekistan is favourably located and in the plan for development of the international aviation communications.
Being between Europe and East Asia, the republic can serve as
rather perspective international transport unit providing a transit airline
traffic of cargoes and passengers.
The Uzbek national airline " Узбекистон хаво йуллари " incorporates,
besides the Tashkent, 12 more regional airports from which
three are adapted to reception of planes of the international class.
The new airport in the centre of the basic stocks of mineral resources
- is under construction. Учкудуке. Now direct airlines connect Uzbekistan to the
largest cities of many countries of the world - New York, London, Frankfurt - на-Майне, Athenes,
Tel Aviv, Bangkok, Seoul, Delhi and others.
In republic the special attention is given the international systems of transport communications
with the purpose of creation of the shortest reliable transport ways providing an
exit in the next states and to World ocean.
The railroad line Tedzhen - Серахс - Meshed which is a
component of the Trans-Asiatic highway connecting Peking with Istanbul is open. By 2000
on this line freight traffics in both directions up to 6-8 million т, and
further increase of them twice are expected.
Movement on this transport corridor will provide to Uzbekistan additional
foreign trade communications as to the east - in the countries of Asian - Pacific region,
and to the west - Turkey and further to Europe. Thus range of transportations in both
directions is reduced more than twice.
In communication and transport maintenance of
Uzbekistan realization of project ТРАСЕКА has huge value by rendering technical assistance of
the European union within the framework of program ТАСИС providing formation транскавказской
of a highway, taking place through territories of the Central - Asian countries, Azerbaijan,
Georgia to ports of Black sea.
Along with construction of railways, Uzbekistan
- Kashgar, giving an exit to China and Pakistan is interested in individual share in construction and reconstruction
of highways, and also Bukhara - Серахс - Meshed
- Teheran and Termez - Herat - Kandahar - Karachi, allowing to leave to Indian
ocean. Use of this transport corridor reduces a way to the countries of
the Organization of economic cooperation (ЭКО) three times.
With end of formation and strengthening of a technical condition of these transcontinental
highways favorable opportunities for realization of
foreign economic relations of Uzbekistan and the countries of the Central Asia, expansion of transit transportations
of cargoes and passengers from the countries of Asian - Pacific region, India and China
in the countries of Near East, Turkey, and also Europe are created. Besides under these communications
practically conterminous to a direction of " the Great silk way ",
realization regular cultural, and tourist communications with many
countries of the world is possible.
With a view of creation of favorable conditions for development and strengthening international
transport and economic relations, Uzbekistan already today carries out a
number of organizational - legal and practical measures in the republic.
Due to own resources construction of two large strategically
important trunk-railways is begun:
Навои - Учкудук - Султаноиздаг - Nukus, extent of 342 kms, and Гузар - Байсун
- Кумкурган, extent of 223 kms, and also reconstruction of
a highway Angren - Kokand. Their introduction in operation will allow not only to open access
to the richest stocks of natural minerals to lower expenses for transport transportations
inside republic, but also will provide an exit to seaports and the international transport
The project of dry port
The project of dry port is of interest from the point of view of creation of
an infrastructure of a new transcontinental transport corridor.
The favourable geographical position of Uzbekistan allows to create the central centre
as dry port for freight traffics from Far East region of Russia and China
to the East Europe, Turkey, Afghanistan and other countries. Creation of such port
due to application of present-day technologies of storage, processing (контейнеризации)
and transportations will allow essentially to reduce the price of imported and exported
The dry port, in opinion of experts, will develop stage by stage and to borrow(occupy) the
area from 80 up to 100 га where container terminals will be placed, warehouses, branch
lines with taps(removals), and also the uniform centre of logistic which are carrying out dispatching
As a possible site of dry port, the Japanese experts define
Sergelijsky area of Tashkent or area of railway station Chukursaj in
the Tashkent area.
On tentative estimations of experts, the total cost of the project depending
on the sizes of created port amounts to up to 90 million dollars. USA.
The project of a special industrial zone
The purpose of the project - creation in adjacent territories of
Bektemirskogo area of Tashkent and the Tashkent area of the first industrial zone the area 200 га with the
appropriate infrastructure. Creation of joint venture for management
of this zone and attraction of the foreign companies for the organization of the manufactures is supposed.
The experience of the Japanese company which have been saved up in the countries of Southeast Asia, allows
to expect for an opportunity of creation in republic
of an industrial zone hi-tech and focused on export.
The project of a special industrial zone is considered(examined) as pilot with
subsequent such creation of industrial zones on all territory of Uzbekistan.
On a tentative estimation of experts, it is supposed to involve till 40-50 the
foreign companies working in sphere of high technologies (electronics, means of
the communications and so forth) with expected volume of capital investments up to 1,5 billion dollars. USA,
up to 70 % of made production and 25 thousand new workplaces.
For arrangement инфрастуктуры zones (motorways, systems электро-and water supply,
communications, telecommunication etc.) attraction of means under program ODA
(the official Aid to development) at a rate of up to 100 million dollars is expected. USA.
As organic addition of the project of an industrial zone is considered(examined) the project of
dry port as the necessary infrastructure for realization
and promotions of production made in this zone on foreign markets by
means of railway and motor transport in this case is created.
