Azerbaijan, Baku / Trend / Azerbaijan have concluded their proposals on commodities and services for their entry to the World Trade Organization (WTO). By the end of October the development of BAUM-tariffs (maximum tariffs for protection of the local market) will be complete for Azerbaijan's entry to the WTO, Mahmoud Mammadguliyev, the Azerbaijani Deputy Foreign Minister and head of the negotiation group, said on 2 October.
"Proposals on commodities and services have been devised. Tariff proposals are needed for bilateral talks with WTO member-countries, particularly, the United States and the European Union," Mammadguliyev stressed.
If the pace of bilateral relations is maintained, in future it is possible to expect a sharp knock in Azerbaijan's entrance to the WTO, he said.
At present intensive work is being carried out to improve legislative acts in line with WTO requirements. Azerbaijan has concluded talks with Georgia, Oman, Moldova, Turkey and United Arab Emirates.
