26/01/2016: Caspian and Black Sea Agrarian Congress, Baku, Azerbaijan on April 12-13, 2016

China's plans to realise one of the most ambitious and expensive infrastructure projects - dubbed 'The Silk Road Economic Belt' and 'The 21st-century Maritime Silk Road' - providing investment inflows to seaports as well as overland transport communication, will contribute to further strengthening of economic relations between the countries of Europe and Asia. At the same time, China holds firm to a strategy focusing on creation of a network of alternative routes.


The reported logistics structure will draw in all countries geographically located in the territory between China and Europe, including the countries of the Black Sea and Caspian Sea regions. In turn, the project will contribute not only to further cutting time of goods delivery, but also to the economic development of the countries in the region, which to be integrated into the reporting transport system. Firstly, such steps will allow increased investment in the infrastructure of the region, and an increase in the trade turnover between them. This particularly concerns agricultural products, because the largest participants in the grain and oilseed markets are located in the Caspian and Black Sea regions: countries such as Ukraine, Russia, Iran, Turkey and Kazakhstan. Further, countries like Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Georgia have to partially cover domestic demand for agricultural commodities through imports, due to their specific natural and climatic characteristics.

The all-Ukrainian public organisation Ukrainian Grain Association and the information-analytical agency APK-Inform are the organisers of the Caspian and Black Sea Agrarian Congress, which will take place in Baku, Azerbaijan on April 12-13, 2016.  
The organisers aim to turn the Congress into one of the most significant agricultural forums, linking the interests of Ukraine, the EU and many neighbouring countries along the so-called 'New Silk Road,' which affects trade routes of China, India, Iran, Turkey, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Russia, Turkmenistan, etc. The Congress is an excellent platform for discussion at the highest expert level on the production and trade of grains, oilseeds and their by-products, fruit and vegetables in the region, and other important issues related to infrastructural projects for agricultural products.

Major topics of the Congress:

  • Global and regional production and trading with grains and oilseeds commodities
  • Global market for fruit and vegetables. Position of Azerbaijan on the global market for fruit and vegetables
  • Development of infrastructural projects in the region (ports, grain and container terminals, rail transport, etc.)
  • Tariff and non-tariff barriers in trading with agricultural products in countries of the region
  • Access to financial and technological resources
  • Development of the market of agricultural machinery and agricultural chemistry
  • Business dialogue between the Congress participants
