Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 5 / Trend /
Slovenian President Danilo Turk said the country hopes to increase trade turnover with Azerbaijan. Foreign trade turnover is low today and must improve, Turk said in an exclusive interview with Trend ' European Desk.
"I see that there are possibilities for economic cooperation in many areas," the president said in the run up to his visit to Azerbaijan scheduled for Nov. 9-10.
"During my visit, I shall be accompanied in Azerbaijan by a 70-member team of key business leaders of Slovenia," he said. "That demonstrates the level of interest that exists in our country. I believe that we have many areas of cooperation, including energy development, information technology, construction and investment in general. I also believe that we can do more in the area of financial services, insurance and other services areas."
The president cited Slovenia's immense experience in constructing not only residential buildings, but also plants, sport complexes and applying new construction materials and technologies.
"Slovenia's firms are using their experience investing in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Middle East. I believe that there are also many other areas in which we can cooperate much more fully than is the case today," Turk said.
