Transport as the Backbone of the Economy
The most important task currently facing government is the systematic construction of an infrastructure backbone that can facilitate resource flows to support economic development. This encompasses the implementation of national programmes aimed at creating and developing international transport corridors, forming the basis of successful global economic integration and allowing the state to effectively carry out its transportation functions. Another important task is the construction of a domestic road network. The creation of a new transport backbone will be a key objective of the ‘Safe and High-Quality Roads’, ‘Developing the National Road Network’ and ‘Modernizing Passenger Transport in Urban Agglomerations’ national projects.
