The Austria-Azerbaijan Commerce Chamber (ATAZ) invites Azerbaijani and Austrian businessmen to cooperate and take part in its activities, ATAZ Honorary President and Azerbaijani Ambassador to Austria Fuad Ismayilov said at a news conference in Baku today.
"Azerbaijan and Austria have great potential for cooperation in all spheres of economy and ATAZ was created precisely to develop this potential," he added.
According to the official, several major Austrian companies such as Austrian Airlines, OMV and Strabag operate in Azerbaijan. The Azerbaijani Cahan Holding also closely works with the Austrian companies.
Today, 30 Austrian companies operate in Azerbaijan and ATAZ's activities will further strengthen cooperation between the two countries, he said.
