Heads of government agencies and national companies provided reports on their work to solve systemic challenges in the transportation sector, including rail, road, sea, air, and pipeline transport.

Tokayev emphasized the importance of developing transit cargo transportation, particularly along the Trans-Caspian International Transport Route, and expanding transport capacity to export domestic products.

He said that this requires eliminating infrastructure constraints and other barriers, improving the quality of transport and logistics services, and refining the tariff-setting system.

The council focused on synchronizing the development of industry, exports, and transit potential, adopting modern standards in infrastructure construction, and ensuring a multiplier effect for the economy from the transport and logistics industry.
