IRU’s Liaison Committee to Eurasia (CLEA), promoting trade and transport between Europe and Asia, has elected a new governing board for the next two year term.
With Eurasia providing an essential bridge between East and West, the region’s drive to modernise, harmonise and digitalise its transport services infrastructure has intensified in the light of China’s Belt and Road initiative. The newly elected Board therefore takes on a challenging mandate, as trade and transit prospects across the region look set to grow.
The new board includes Bekmyrat Eyeberdiev (THADA, Turkmenistan) as President, and Vice Presidents Gia Tsipuria (GIRCA, Georgia) and Sergey Baklitsky (ASMAP, Russia).
Today’s session was also attended by Kyrgyzstan’s customs and transport ministers: First Deputy Chairman of the State Customs Committee, Shamil Bedaliev; and Deputy Minister of Transport and Roads, Azimkan Zhusubaliev.
IRU Secretary General, Umberto de Pretto, and Chairman of IRU member AIRTO KR, Turkmen Bootaev, presented the IRU Top Road Transport Manager Award to Azamat Alybaev, Director of Kyrgyzstan’s “Dolf-Man” transport company.
