On 1 May 2017, upon official invitation of Mr. Mircea Ciopraga, TRACECA Secretary General, H.E. Mr. Erkan Ozoral, Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey in Azerbaijan paid a visit to TRACECA Headquarter


Turkey, as the member-country of the IGC TRACECA since signing of the Basic Multilateral Agreement (MLA) makes important contributions to the development of the international transport corridor Europe-the Caucasus-Asia.

Over time TRACECA has matured from a technical project to an instrument for economic development of its participating countries. In the course of its 24 years of existence, the corridor has moved from being a political vision to becoming a transnational transport corridor with concrete operations and actions.

Modernization of national projects, programmes, outlook and image for the future were in the focus of discussion within bilateral meeting.

During the meeting, Mr. Ciopraga, Secretary General of the PS IGC TRACECA and H.E. Mr. Erkan Ozoral exchanged opinions on the current status of the development of the international transport corridor on the level of TRACECA-TRACECA and EU-TRACECA.

Mr. Ciopraga stressed the importance of essential support of every TRACECA member state regarding initiatives and suggestions on further development within realization of the Action Plan for implementation of the Strategy of the IGC TRACECA for the period 2016-2026 elaborated on the basis of the Master Plan TRACECA and proposals of the Parties for 2017-2020.

H.E. Mr. Erkan Ozoral and Mr. Ciopraga also discussed the issue of the next Meeting of the PS IGC TRACECA to be held in Bucharest on 23 May this year.
