Romanian Romania and Republic of Moldova join forces to support Black Sea ring highway

Romania and the Republic of Moldova have agreed to promote and support a route of the future Black Sea ring-highway that would include capitals Bucharest and Chisinau, respectively. Romanian Transport Minister Alexandru Nazare and his Moldavian counterpart Anatol Selaru signed last week a joint letter to the Technical Secretary of the Black Sea ring-road, to support the track Giurgiu – Bucharest – Focșani-Albița-Chișinău-Odessa, as well as a connection with the Black Sea through port town Constanta.

The ring highway around the Black Sea would be 7,140 km long and connect Istanbul (Turkey), Samsun (Turkey), Trabzon (Turkey), Batumi (Georgia), Poti (Georgia), Novorossiisk (Russia), Rostov-on-Don (Russia), Taganrog (Russia), Mariupol (Ukraine), Odessa (Ukraine), Chisinau (Republic of Moldova), Bucharest (Romania), Haskovo (Bulgaria), Edirne (Turkey), Istanbul (Turkey), Komotini (Greece), Alexandroupoli (Greece).

The future highway is expected to boost trade, economic, humanitarian and tourism ties in the Black Sea region and across the entire Eurasian continent.
