Azerbaijan, Baku, Oct. 17 /Trend E. Aliyev/
Baku will host the Azerbaijani-Slovenian business forum on October 22, a message of the Azerbaijan Export and Investment Promotion Fund (AZPROMO) said on Thursday.
It is expected that over 50 entrepreneurs from Slovenia, working in the spheres of tourism, banking, ICT, energy, construction, real estate, defence industry, consulting, and other areas, will participate in the forum.
The last meeting between the business people of the two countries was held in January 2013, during a visit of Slovenia's ex-Prime Minister, Janez Jansa to Azerbaijan's capital of Baku.
According to Azerbaijani State Customs Committee, in January-August 2013 the trade turnover between the two countries amounted to $8.47 million. Major part of this volume accounts for import of Slovenian goods to Azerbaijan, which has made up $8.46 million, 2.35 times more than in the same period of 2012.
