A New Silk Road

This article discusses China's efforts to build a decent road from China through Central Asia possibly to Europe. Central Asia is in serious need of some decent methods of transportation since all Central Asian countries are landlocked.

China is already funding a road from Osh (in southern Kyrgyzstan on the Uzbek border) to Kashi in western China. Maybe someday it will be easier to get around Central Asia.
