Italy eyes to increase trade with Azerbaijan
Italy aims to engage in new sectors of trade with Azerbaijan, Luigi D’Aprea, director general of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Azerbaijan, said in an exclusive interview with Trend.
Opportunities for the development of trade between Italy and Azerbaijan are very extensive, and this is manifested not only in the oil and gas sector, where, by the way, Italy holds a very strong position, D’Aprea said.
Considering other sectors, one may note that Italy is represented very well in the metallurgical sector of Azerbaijan, he added. The latest contract signed between Italy’s Danieli and Baku Steel Company, which embodies further growth and development of Italy’s activity in this sector, is a proof of this, he noted.
Regarding the trade turnover between Azerbaijan and Italy, D’Aprea said that despite the slight decrease in the bilateral trade, Italy remains one of the main trade partners of Azerbaijan. Italy and Azerbaijan have excellent bilateral and economic relations, D’Aprea noted.
