CAREC Workshop on Corridor Performance Measurement and Monitoring

Guangzhou, People's Republic of China: 23–24 February 2009

Background and Objectives

The Workshop on CAREC Corridors Performance Measurement and Monitoring (CPMM) was held on 23–24 February 2009 in Guangzhou, People's Republic of China (PRC).

The main focus of the CPMM is to measure and monitor periodically the situation along the links and nodes of each CAREC corridor, identify bottlenecks, and determine courses of action to take to address such bottlenecks.

The seminar was held to

  1. discuss in more detail the technical issues in implementing the Time–Cost–Distance (TCD) methodology and recent updates;
  2. validate the appropriateness of selected CAREC corridors; and
  3. finalize project schedule, partnership arrangements, and data consolidation procedures.

The participants reached consensus on the data collection procedures, the modes of transport, and subcorridors to be covered by the surveys and data consolidation and analysis arrangements. The workshop also created an effective forum among freight forwarders and road carriers associations to meet and discuss common areas of interests, and embark on innovative projects for their common good.


The workshop brought together officials of the customs administrations and carrier/freight forwarders associations from Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, PRC, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.
