New Eurasian Land Transport Initiative (NELTI) – Final report

This report presents the final results of the 1st phase of the IRU’s New Eurasian Land Transport Initiative (NELTI). These results show that reopening the Silk Road to trade by road transport constitutes a viable, cost-effective alternative to traditional increasingly saturated trading routes and that remaining impediments to significantly increasing such trade flows are of a procedural nature, not infrastructural.
