Minister: The Government of Armenia is exploring various options for  improving transport links with the EAEU countries

ArmInfo. The Armenian government is exploring various options for improving transport links with the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union, including the  option of acquiring the "Port Caucasus" ferry crossing. Tigran  Khachatryan, Minister of Economy of the Republic of Armenia, said at  a hearing in a permanent parliamentary commission on regional and  Eurasian integration, answering the question of the economist Tatul  Manaseryan.

The economist suggested returning to the consideration of the project  for the acquisition of the Port Caucasus ferry crossing. "It would  not hurt for the state itself to take a direct part in this process,  creating an open joint-stock company, the shares of which could later  be placed with investors," Tatul Manaseryan said. He noted that,  despite the measures taken to equip the Upper Lars checkpoint, the  creation of "green corridors" and the introduction of an electronic  warning system, the problem will remain, since there is an increase  in freight traffic from year to year.

In response, Minister of Economy of the Republic of Armenia Tigran  Khachatryan noted that the government is studying all possible  reliable alternative checkpoints "Upper Lars" for exporting products  to the EAEU markets.

Meanwhile, according to the chairman of the commission on regional  and Eurasian integration, Mikayel Melkumyan, the implementation of  the "ferry" project requires careful analysis, including, in terms of  self- sufficiency, the number of ferries, its load, etc. The deputy  recalled that the average cost of one ton of cargo through the ferry  crossing is 10% -12% higher than the cost of transporting goods  through the Upper Lars checkpoint. In addition, an interstate  agreement with Georgia will be required, in which it will be  necessary to take into account the presence of a terminal in the port  of Poti. "But it is necessary to discuss this possibility," the MP  stated, recalling that the logistics capabilities of Tskhinvali and  Batumi due to political unsettled will be closed for a long time to  Armenian exporters.
