China-Central-West Asia Economic Corridor: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan...

The objective of the China-Central-West Asia Economic Corridor is to interconnect the rail systems between China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Iran and Turkey.

That is to say, it allows to unite China (Uruqmi, Xinjiang via Alashankou, border with Kazakhstan) with the Mediterranean Sea (Ankara, Turkey).

This is one of the main axes of the new Silk Road; It connects the Chinese province of Xinjiang with the Mediterranean Sea, through Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran and Turkey. The Corridor follows the ancient Silk Road.

This initiative is completed with bilateral cooperation agreements between China and the Central Asian States. This corridor aims to better connect all the regional economies to China, but also to Europe, and therefore offers a new intercontinental communication network that will open up Central Asian states.

Route of the China-Central Asia-Western-Asia Economic Corridor

Urumqui (China, Xingiang), China-Kazakhstan border, Almaty, Kazakhstan-Kyrgyzstan border, Bishkek - Kyrgyz-Uzbekistan border, Tashkent, Samarkand - Uzbekistan-Tajikistan border, Dushanbe, Turkmenistan border, Ashgabat, Iran border, Tehran, Turkey border, Ankara, Istanbul.

This corridor connects with:

  1. Tashlente-Aktau connection (Caspian Sea, Kazakhstan)
  2. Dushanbe- Kabul connection (Afghanistan)
  3. Tehran-Bandar Abbas connection (Iran)
  4. Turkey-Riyadh connection (Saudi Arabia)

When the China-Central-West Asia Economic Corridor is fully operational, shipping goods by train from eastern China to Iran can be done in half the time by sea from the port of Shanghai. The economic impact of the corridor will be extremely important throughout the region.

The corridor is made up of different sections of the corridor, practically all have been implemented.
