Construction of TASIM Scheduled for 2016

Construction of the Trans-Eurasian Information Super Highway (TASIM) is scheduled for 2016, Azerbaijani Deputy Minister of Communications and High Technologies Elmir Velizadeh said.

"The project operators signed a memorandum of understanding on the TASIM project in December, 2013. The next step is to sign an agreement in principle, the main goal of which is to start the work on the project

Currently, the TASIM project includes Russia (Rostelecom), Kazakhstan (KazTransCom), Turkey (TurkTelecom), China (China Telecom), and Azerbaijan (represented by the Center for International Relations and Calculations of the Ministry of Communications and High Technologies).

The cost of the project is estimated at $100 million, according to the preliminary estimates. It can be adjusted after certain aspects are approved.

The project envisages the creation of a major transit line from Frankfurt to Hong Kong. The network that brings together the largest information exchange centers of Europe and Asia will run through the territories of Azerbaijan, Turkey, Georgia, China, and Kazakhstan, to Germany.

An alternative north transit line will be constructed through the territories of Russia, Ukraine and Poland. The project is aimed at reducing poverty, and accelerating economic growth. It may also play a leading role in the regional development.

TASIM is designed to connect a total of 20 countries. Its implementation will eliminate the information gap between Western Europe and the Pacific Basin.
