Kazakhstan to Cooperate with Norway’s Port of Narvik

Thursday 26 September 2019

NUR-SULTAN / EX ASTANA (The Astana Times) — Narvik, one of Norway’s largest ports, can become an Atlantic gateway for Kazakhstan, said Narvik Port Authority Director and CEO Rune Johan Arnøy.}

Arnøy was in the Kazakh capital to participate in the Sept. 19-20 Coordinating Council on Trans-Siberian Transportation (CCTT) General Assembly plenary session.

“We met with the management of KTZ Express, a company that offers logistic services and multimodal transport in Kazakhstan. We believe this meeting will bring us forward in this New Silk Road, as they call it, from China to Europe and in our respect to Narvik being a gateway to North America,” he said in an interview for this story.

As a freight hub and transit port, Narvik is connected by rail with Sweden, which, in turn, is connected with Finland and further through Russia with Kazakhstan and China. Narvik may become an important link in the trans-Eurasian transit and transport corridor, noted Kazakh Ambassador to Norway Yerkin Akhinzhanov at a meeting with Narvik Mayor Rune Edvardsen and Arnøy in early September.
