The Ministry of Development of Communities and Territories and Infrastructure has initiated negotiations with Moldova and Romania to establish a "green corridor" between the border crossing points "Reni (Ukraine) – Giurgiulești (Moldova) – Galați (Romania)" to expedite the movement of goods and the export of Ukrainian agricultural products.

This has been a key topic of discussion involving Deputy Minister of Development of Communities, Territories, and Infrastructure of Ukraine, Serhiy Derkach, State Secretary of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Regional Development of the Republic of Moldova, Mircea Pascalutsa, and State Secretary for Transport and Infrastructure of Romania, Ionel Scrioșteanu.

"The proposal to establish a "green corridor" comprises a series of measures involving all three countries. Primarily, this entails joint control between Ukraine and Moldova and coordinated control between Moldova and Romania. As a result of this decision, we will be able to reduce the number of truck stops and, accordingly, expedite inspections. Globally, this solution will help address the issue of comprehensive infrastructure development on the Ukraine-Moldova-Romania border," emphasized Sergey Derkach.

 

 

These border crossing points are located in close proximity to each other and are strategically important for goods transported by road to ports, particularly the Romanian port of Galați.

To establish the "green corridor," in addition to introducing joint control, several other decisions are necessary, including the expansion of the Reni border crossing point. In this case, Moldovan authorities would be able to conduct all the necessary procedures at the Ukrainian exit.

Furthermore, the plan for launching the "green corridor" includes:

  • Road reconstruction from Reni to Galați and widening it from 2 to 4 lanes.
  • Additional technical equipment for border crossing points.

All of these measures are possible with the support and agreement of all three parties. Currently, the Reni-Dzhurdzhuleshti border crossing point processes around 50 trucks per day. However, this is one of the key border crossing points for road transport to Romanian ports. The primary goal of developing the infrastructure at this border crossing point and establishing the "green corridor" is to increase its actual capacity by at least fivefold.
