The parties are also interested in expanding partnerships in the field of information.
The main practical areas of cooperation will be the development and implementation of specific programs, projects and plans aimed at increasing the efficiency of international transport corridors, as well as the collection and analysis of information on their formation and use.
Commenting on the signing of the agreement, Dmitry Pankov noted: “Two global international transport corridors, West-East and North-South, pass through our country. This gives us significant advantages and potential for the development of logistics activities.
Today's realities require not just the development of these ITCs, but often a restructuring of all the established routes and chains. And the direction from the North to the South and back is becoming increasingly important. Our cooperation with our colleagues from the Directorate of International Transport Corridors is aimed at finding optimal solutions within such corridors, both for the assets of Delo Group and for the entire foreign economic activity of our country.

In case the foreign trade priorities of the country are changing, it is necessary to build new transport and logistic chains in the direction of friendly countries, interested in development of business relations with Russia”, - Alexey Petrov emphasized.
