If those prerequisites are to be met then there is an opportunity to see our products at this important regional market, Economic Chamber of Macedonia said in a press release.
The Republic of Azerbaijan's GDP is estimated at US$93.5 billion and GDP per capita is US$10.000. Azerbaijani export amounts US$34.5 billion and import of goods and services is US$10.2 billion.
