Azerbaijan plans to organize an export mission to Egypt in 2016, Rufat Mammadov, head of Azerbaijan Export and Investment Promotion Foundation (AZPROMO), told reporters Nov. 10 in Baku.
Mammadov recalled that currently, the export mission of Azerbaijani entrepreneurs is in China, and the mission to Dubai, the UAE, will be organized until the end of 2016.
“Entrepreneurs, who will visit Egypt and Dubai, will present spheres of agriculture, processing, food industry, including the production of soft drinks,” he noted.
Mammadov noted that during the visit, the entrepreneurs will hold negotiations with local companies to expand their export opportunities, as well as one of the companies’ plans to sign a contract on results of the visit.

Trade turnover between Azerbaijan and Egypt amounted to about $4.5 million in January-September 2016, $4.2 million of which accounted for import of Egyptian products, according to Azerbaijan’s State Customs Committee.
