Based on its strategic location, as well as its historical significance as a vital point of passage along the storied Silk Road, Georgia plays a significant geopolitical role - providing a well-established and reliable gateway for trade between the landlocked countries of Central Asia and Europe.
Out of the three main roads from Europe into Asia, the road through Georgia is the most enduring and secure. In addition, and with Georgia’s stable political and economic climate, the Caucasian corridor has become increasingly more attractive for operators engaged in international trade.
Recognizing that the Suez channel has reached its maximum capacity, there is clearly an opportunity to open North-South land-transport through Georgia.
