U.S. National Defense University Students Visited the Caspian Policy Center
Washington, DC, February 15, 2018, The Caspian Policy Center – a nonprofit policy research organization dedicated to providing debate platform and strategic insights to help decision makers better understand the Caspian region – hosted the students from the National War College at the U.S. National Defense University – an institution of higher education intended to facilitate high-level training, education, and the development of national security strategy.
Dr. Efgan Nifti, Executive Director of CPC, and Ambassador Richard E. Hoagland, CPC Board Member shared their insights on major aspects of geopolitical and economic issues in the trans-Caspian region with the students and answered the questions on the engagement with great powers, recent infrastructure projects, inter-regional trade relations, current status and prospects for the future energy export diversification.
“The Caspian region is strategically positioned in the east-west and north-south transit corridors and connectivity,” said Dr. Efgan Nifti, Executive Director of CPC. “These corridors are not only important for the China-Europe trade, but also for the intra-regional economic integration and diversification.”
