The proposal was made recently in Vilnius, during negotiations between Belarus’ Transport and Communications Minister, Ivan Shcherbo, and the Lithuanian Minister for Transport and Communications, Eligijus Masiulis. “The Lithuanians have invited private and state transport and logistics companies and organisations from Belarus to become members of the East-West Transport Corridor Association, which unites transport and logistics enterprises and state organisations,” notes the Transport and Communications Ministry’s Press Service. Belarusian Railways is already a member, with Belintertrans — Transport and Logistics Centre expected to join soon.
The two ministers discussed issues of collaboration as part of the Northern Dimension partnership, regarding automobile transport and logistics, as well as information sharing on road tolls during road passenger and cargo transportations. The heads of transport ministries are satisfied with the constructive and successful co-operation of Belarus and Lithuania in this sphere.
