On October 5, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed a decree on Uzbekistan’s accession to the Intergovernmental Agreement on Dry Ports.
The agreement, which simplifies the procedure for the transportation of goods by sea, was adopted in Bangkok on May 1, 2013.
Dry port of international importance means a place within the territory of a country with a logistics center connected to one or more modes of transport, intended for processing, temporary storage and legally required inspection of goods transported in the process of international trade, and the performance of applicable customs control functions and formalities. Ownership of dry ports can be public, private, or public-private partnerships.
The Transport Ministry of Uzbekistan has been designated as the competent authority for the implementation of the treaty.
