Azerbaijan to learn Australia's automation experience
Baku, Azerbaijan, May 16
By Azad Hasanli - Trend:
Azerbaijan could learn from the experience of Australia in automation of processes, says the founder and director of the Azerbaijani Chamber of Commerce in Australia, Nizami Jafarov.
In an interview with Trend, Jafarov noted that the Chamber of Commerce is currently working to help implement the Australian experience in this area in Azerbaijan.
"Australia is an advanced country in the field of automation of both electronic government and industry, agriculture, aviation and other areas. In particular, [autonomous] tractors without drivers are operated in Australia. This practice can be implemented in Azerbaijan," Jafarov said.
He noted that Australia could also share its experience in the automation of processes at ports.
"In Australia there are several ports where the movement of containers takes place without the participation of people. There are also good examples of process automation in the aviation and heavy industries. In general, it is in this direction that Australia can share its experience with Azerbaijan. We want to introduce this practice [in Azerbaijan] and we are working on it," Jafarov said.
In turn, Jafarov continued, Azerbaijan could share its experience in the energy sector with Australia. Both countries could also cooperate in the e-government sphere. In this regard, Azerbaijan has accumulated very good experience with the ASAN Service, he added.
According to the data published by the State Customs Committee of Azerbaijan, trade turnover with Australia in 2017 amounted to $5.5 million.
Almost the entire amount of the trade turnover fell on the import of Australian products.
