Trans-Caspian East-West Trade & Transit Corridor Forum | U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Trans-Caspian East-West Trade & Transit Corridor Forum

Tuesday, June 13, 2017 - 11:45am

On June 26 – 27, 2017 the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will be an Official Partner of the Trans-Caspian East-West Trade & Transit Corridor Forum. These countries plan to attract substantial U.S., Chinese, Japanese, European and local investment in new infrastructure that will expedite transit, and improve economic conditions for more than 110 million consumers.

The Forum will take place at the The City View Room at The George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs (1957 E Street, NW, Washington, D.C.). This forum brings together the Central Asia, Caspian and Black Sea strategic regions to form a viable trade and transit corridor between Europe and East & South-East Asia. Connecting trade, people and economies, the modern Trans-Caspian corridor has an extensive and integrated network of infrastructure, special economic zones, harmonized customs and cross-border procedures along the route.

The forum, initiated in partnership with Central Asia and Caucasus Institute under American Foreign Policy Council, will take place at the George Washington University on June 26, followed by a policy discussion at the U.S. Congress and roundtable meeting at the World Bank on June 27.  The first day of the forum will be open to the wider public, including academic, think-tank, policy, and business communities and government officials.
