Azerbaijan is geographically located on East-West and North-South transportation corridors and its territories were used historically by Silk Road caravans. Therefore, revival of the Silk Road related initiatives would not leave Azerbaijan outside the plans and, on the contrary, would attempt to use the country's transit potential and natural resources as a driver on their way of development from Asia to Europe and back. It is obvious that Azerbaijan is also keen to transform these opportunities into benefits and share them with its neighbours.
