Mr Horváth expressed his regret, that in the last 20 years the usage of this corridor has been considerably decreased concerning many reasons, although in some cases it didn’t make any sense.

The reasons are the following:
- the shortage of the wide gauge railway cars
- the high tariffs
- providing customs guarantee

Mr Bárány has been ensured by Mr Misharin, that is the very interest of RZD, that the flowing of the good would change from road to rail transportation, in a bigger and bigger volume.
