SPECA - Transport and Border Crossing Facilitation

SPECA was launched in 1998 to address challenges faced by Central Asian countries. It particularly aims to strengthen sub-regional cooperation and integrate the region into the world economy.

The Project Working Group (PWG) on Transport and Border Crossing is a subsidiary body of SPECA. It focuses on developing new, and extending existing, road and rail networks in the region, as well as implementing the Programme of action resulting from the Almaty declaration of Land-Locked and Transit Developing Countries


The 20th session of SPECA Project Working Group on Transport and Border Crossing (PWG-TBC) will take place on 10-11 September 2015 in Almaty, Kazakhstan. It will be hosted by the Ministry of Investments and Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the lead SPECA country in the field of transport.

A Road Safety Capacity Building Workshop for SPECA countries will be held back-to-back with the PWG-TBC on 11 September 2015 in Almaty.
