4.In order to promote intra-LAS trade and facilitate international road transportation in the LAS region, also the following bottlenecks should be addressed:

Impediments at the level of logistics: infrastructure, transports, support services to international trade;

Lack of information on international markets and business opportunities;

The complexity of national and international administrative procedures related to foreign trade, such as those of customs clearing, banking, ports, etc.;

Lack of managerial staff and technicians specialized in international trade, logistics and transport;

Recommendations


5.Carry out a feasibility study to plan a network of ancillary infrastructure and safe and secure parking places in the LAS region, in particular nearby the border crossings, but also along the most important national and international corridors

Recommendations


Largest safe and secure parking places with wide range of services near borders

On road transport corridor with length of 2500 km, between 12-50 safe and secure parking places depending on traffic density

Total investment costs for 25 safe and secure parking places with a capacity of 200 places each amounts 90,000,000 USD

Guidelines Parking Places


Costs Parking Place


6.Set up a strategic committee to study the recommendations and come up with a short strategy to be endorsed by the LAS or AULT or any other relevant party
