The program consists of feasibility studies, expert workshops and delegation visits, in order for the partners to explore how renewable energy and increased levels of digitalization can improve sustainability.
At this meeting, participants discussed the possible benefits offered by reduced border crossing times and enhanced co-operation between authorities.
One of these initiatives, a workshop on digitalization held with the Port of Baku, focused on the potential for a new digital platform to facilitate data exchange between ports in the Caspian Sea.
The program was launched by Dr. Taleh Ziyadov, Director-General of the Port of Baku, and Vuk Žugić, Co-ordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities, the project aims to support facilities in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan.
As Dr. Ziyadov commented
The co-operation between the Port of Baku and the OSCE, and the sister ports of the Caspian region which starts today is another crucial step in administering further environmental protection and accelerating more efficient and timely data exchange in the Caspian region.
The project is financially supported by Azerbaijan, Germany, Italy and Iceland.
