- About EASST
Ministers of 11 CAREC countries (Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation) have given their endorsement to a new and ambitious road safety strategy that could greatly reduce road casualties in the region. The member countries include Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, People’s Republic of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, with Georgia participating as an observer and future member.
