BAM turns 45

The BAM is one of the key elements of transport infrastructure ensuring fast-paced economic growth in Russian regions. The BAM project is a powerful driver for the economy and social infrastructure development still relevant nowadays. Its practical and strategic significance is unquestionable because of great opportunities it offers for exploration and mining, as well as for freight transportation between Asia and Europe.”
