Azerbaijan to become transit hub: Djibouti DGZ head (exclusive)

Azerbaijan will become a big transit hub in the region, Aboubaker Omar Hadi, chairman of Djibouti Ports and Free Zone Authority

Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 30 By Maksim Tsurkov – Azerbaijan will become a big transit hub in the region, Aboubaker Omar Hadi, chairman of Djibouti Ports and Free Zone Authority (DGZ), said in an exclusive interview with Trend in Baku. Hadi noted that Azerbaijan has a very important geographical location at the crossroads of different countries and regions. "Azerbaijan is located on the shore of the Caspian Sea. Russia is located to the north, Iran to the south, Turkey and Europe to the west and China to the east," he said. It is not surprising that the Great Silk Road was passing through Azerbaijan, noted Hadi. Hadi also said he has visited the Baku International Sea Trade Port and is satisfied with what he has seen. The port is very big and good, and despite the fact that the construction continues, the port already receives and sends vessels, he said. Hadi also noted that the main purpose of his visit to Baku is to establish relations with the management of the Baku Port. "We wanted to establish relations, discuss how we can develop our relations, how we can cooperate," said Hadi. "We intend to sign a memorandum of understanding in order to develop the cooperation with the Baku Port." "Prospects of our cooperation in the near future are very promising," he added.
