Furthermore, on March 31, the Economy Minister of Georgia announced a quadrilateral declaration on the Trans-Caspian East-West Middle Corridor that was signed by Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Kazakhstan, with the agreement highlighting the significance of measures to bolster the transit potential of the signatory states.

The need for infrastructure investments to improve the quality of transport operations along the route has also been emphasized in the agreement.

The Trans-Caspian East-West-Middle Corridor, also known as the Middle Corridor, starts in Turkey and runs across the Caucasus region, passing via Georgia, Azerbaijan, and the Caspian Sea before crossing Central Asia and reaching China. It runs via Georgia and Azerbaijan by rail and road before reaching the Caspian Sea, passing the Caspian transit corridor, and connecting to China through the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Kyrgyzstan or Kazakhstan routes.
