Russia hampers Lithuanian carriers' international business

BC, Vilnius, 30.09.2014.Print version
Russia continues to hamper Lithuanian carriers' possibilities of participating in the international transport service market, informs LETA/ELTA.

During a sitting of the Working Group on Road Transport of the International Transport Forum, Russia has informed that the validity of the European Conference of Ministers of Transport (ECMT) permits, which are used for third-country journeys to other ECMT countries or between them, is reduced to 16 basic units.


It means that in 2015, only 16 permits will be valid in Russia out of 169 basic permits issued to Lithuania.


When Lithuania became a member of the organisation, the quota of 128 basic ECMT permits was established for the country.
