Pakistan and Iran to give Russia access to the Indian Ocean
Some of the most promising projects for 2018 -and onwards- are dealing with the development of north-south transport routes in Central Asia. Countries like India, Iran and Pakistan are already heavily involved.
At the end of December 2017, a new transport corridor through Russia was opened with Iran ferrying a large batch of mandarins from Pakistan all the way to Kazakhstan. This was part of an initiative that could open a new corridor for the delivery of food products from Southeast Asia to markets not only in Russia, but in Western Europe as well.
According to a maritimeherald.com article, Iran plans to use this route for the transit of goods from its south-eastern port of Chabahar to Central Asia and Europe, which, in the end, will become a major East-West corridor.
