Project Summary

Uzbekistan has no exit to world ocean and the seas. Therefore it is very important to develop automobile and railway transport communications. Uzbekistan possesses huge transport potential and unique possibilities of maintenance of requirements of the country in moving as cargoes, and passengers in all directions. Creation of the international transport system providing access to the next states and other countries of the world, one of priority directions of development of the country.Developments of transport communications not probably without application of modern technics, ICT and preparations of engineering shots from high qualification. Therefore, Uzbekistan need to development of transport highways and of a transport infrastructure of the country, and also preparation of highly skilled engineers in the field of transport and road communications. This project domain is in-line with Uzbekistan government’s national development policy in sustainable transport development of country.
