Ukraine to provide safe movement of goods on Europe-Asia route - Infrastructure Minister

Ukraine to provide safe movement of goods on Europe-Asia route - Infrastructure MinisterThe top priority for Ukraine is the provision for reliable and safe movement of goods on the Europe-Asia route via the creation of digital corridors.

The press service of Ukraine's Infrastructure Ministry has reported that Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan gave this information at the 79th session of the Inland Transport Committee (ITC) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.

"The 'digital corridor' implies the use of modern information systems providing for continuous monitoring of cargo flows, the tool for electronic cooperation of foreign economic operators with transport and shipping companies and public oversight agencies and the organization of exchange of data in the volumes required for business processes of the system participants," he said.

The minister said that Ukraine has joined the EU e-Infrastructure project. The country must toughen legislation in the area of digital technologies and create institutional preconditions for digital development for this project.

Creation of digital transport corridors is to allow tracking cargo online without any territorial, technical or legal restrictions and the organisation of business processes on the basis of e-documents, he said.

"However, despite the fact that the creation of digital transport corridors is planned for the near future, today we are taking measures to relax the trade rules," the minister said.
