By Fakhri Vakilov - Trend:

President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev ordered the authorities to activate road transport routes to China through the territory of Tajikistan, Trend reports via Russian media.

Measures have already been approved to increase the transit potential of the transport sector of Uzbekistan.

A pilot rally will be organized along the route Uzbekistan-Tajikistan-China.

A representative of the Ministry of Transport of Uzbekistan explained that the rally should demonstrate the possibilities and reserves to increase the transit potential of direct deliveries of goods from Uzbekistan and Tajikistan to China.

"The route of the rally is currently being worked out," Ministry of Transport stressed.

Moreover, the guidebook also provides for measures to reduce the passage of heavy and oversized vehicles through the Kamchik pass in the Tashkent region at the expense of alternative bypass transport corridors through Tajikistan.
