In mid-2011 ICHD initiated this research, building up on earlier attempts by UMB(E)A and TABDC to establish cooperation around issues of transport and freight forwarding. This report is based on previous ICHD research and builds up on the findings of an UMB(E)A study Business Opinion Leaders, which focused on the issue of transport among others. The study provides a baseline snapshot of the perspectives of business leaders and their understanding of business cooperation in a variety of sectors in general, and six targeted sectors in particular, namely tourism, transport, agriculture, IT/communications, light industry and manufacturing, construction/building materials, and engineering. This particular study focused on the transport sector and all the related issues in more detail. It included broader layers of stakeholders in Armenia and Turkey to discuss these issues.

The report addresses road, railroad and multimodal transportation issues, in which stakeholders have expressed a key interest. It also looks into two possible development scenarios of transport interactions between Armenia and Turkey. It is based on the findings of a desk review, conducted by a team of local experts. The desk review included an analysis of data from various databases, analytical documents, reports, studies and other documents prepared by credible international and local institutions and experts. In addition to the desk review, ICHD experts have conducted several in-depths interviews with the primary stakeholders, such as Armenian and Turkish transportation business owners, freight forwarding companies, and carriers including Meltrans LTD, Sati Armenia, Apaven Ltd, Hopa trans, and Gozde Nakliyat.

This research study has been prepared by a student specialized in Political Sciences studies, holding an intern-position at ICHD during the period between July 22nd and August 31st, 2012. It is based on various types of resources including SATR partners’ reports, American and European Union studies and credible academic research papers. Press articles mostly provided by Armenian and Turkish agencies accounting for the period between 2007 and 2012 have been used as factual information. We also found firsthand information in several websites detailing programs of travel agents, organizations, exhibitions and official meetings. Main conclusions have also been drawn from the execution and the analysis of interviews with travel agents and tourism organizations’ delegates.
