Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 24
Azerbaijan will open its Trade House in Kyiv in mid-March 2018, Azerbaijan’s Ambassador to Ukraine Azer Khudiyev said in an interview with Ukrinform agency.
“In mid-March, we are planning to open Azerbaijan’s Trade House in Kyiv. We have already found premises in the center of Kyiv, and now the matter is in the stage of documentation. Respective repairs are being conducted simultaneously,” Khudiyev said.
According to him, the head of the Trade House has already been elected, and he is currently engaged in the formation of his apparatus.
“The Trade House will showcase and sell products of domestic production, as well as coordinate imports, exports and re-exports. We also plan to analyze the market, identify priority areas of cooperation, and provide legal support for Azerbaijani business companies,” noted the ambassador.
Khudiyev is confident that this will be a good platform for coordinating the entire Azerbaijani business, which will be very beneficial for the Ukrainian side.
There are a lot of interesting Ukrainian projects and products that need export and import to the markets of Central Asia and Iran, he said.
“However, this is impossible due to a number of circumstances. But I think the implementation of these opportunities is quite realistic through Azerbaijan and the Baku International Sea Trade Port, which we recently opened,” added the diplomat.
The ambassador noted that the volume of trade turnover between Ukraine and Azerbaijan can be increased by $1 billion per year with the help of this project and several other events.
