Russia’s Tyumen offers Azerbaijan to build logistics complex
Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov. 2
Russia’s Tyumen region has offered Azerbaijan to build a wholesale trade and distribution complex to simplify the logistics of agricultural products, governor of the region Vladimir Yakushev told reporters in Baku Nov. 2 during a meeting of the Caspian-European Integration Business Club (CEIBC).
“Construction of the complex will cost nearly 3 billion roubles,” said Yakushev. “We are ready to provide construction sites for the complex, tax and other benefits to entrepreneurs.”
He also believes that the project’s payback period will be less than seven years.
Yakushev noted that the complex may be used not only for the supply of Azerbaijani fruits and vegetables to Tyumen and other regions of Russia, but also for the export of grain and potatoes from the Tyumen region to Azerbaijan.
