“The formation of international transport corridors on Russian territory is aimed at improving the efficiency and quality of Russian foreign trade transportation”, - DorInfo quotes the Adviser to the Directorate for Transport Economics of the Analytical Center Mikhail Nizov.

According to him, the use of the geographically advantageous position of Russia should promote the expansion of transport services export, including transit transportation service for third countries. “The increase in transit traffic stimulates the development of international trade relations, transport infrastructure and the regional economy, providing employment opportunities and transport accessibility”, - said the expert.

According to Mr. Nizov, now it is necessary to consider the international transport corridors, which are used for transit, to identify bottlenecks and to use financial resources for their expansion. At the present moment, the development of transit potential in Russia in 5 times lower than in Belarus, he added.
