Azerbaijan to open its first trade mission in Russia
Azerbaijan's first trade mission will be opened in Russia in the near future, the deputy head of the Ministry of Economy of Azerbaijan Sahil Babayev said at a meeting with members of the US Chamber of Commerce.
"Russia is Azerbaijan's main trading partner, so it is logical that the first trade representative of the republic will be there," the correspondent of Vestnik Kavkaza cited him as saying.
"We are considering the possibility of appointing our trade representatives in China and the UAE in the near future. Azerbaijan also intends to open trading houses in Belarus and Ukraine in order to promote our commercial products in these countries," Sahil Babayev added.
The Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev signed a decree to appoint trade representatives in the embassies and consulates of the country. Trade representatives will carry out measures to increase Azerbaijan's trade and economic relations with foreign countries and protect the republic's economic interests.
