Azerbaijani, Russian business councils sign agreement on co-op
Baku, Azerbaijan, Sept. 27
By Azad Hasanli – Trend:
The business councils of Azerbaijan and Russia signed an agreement on cooperation.
The document was signed by chairmen of the Azerbaijani-Russian and Russian-Azerbaijani business councils Samad Gurbanov and Alexey Repik on the sidelines of the 9th Azerbaijan-Russia Interregional forum in Baku on Sept. 27.
Repik told reporters after the signing that one of the objectives of the agreement for Azerbaijan and Russia is to get formal opportunity to represent each other in their domestic markets and help solve the tasks that, for example, Azerbaijani partners in Russia have.
The document is an institutional framework that creates a new system format for dialogue between the countries, he noted.
“Every new year, every new month, when we come here and tell about the success of certain companies, other companies draw conclusions for themselves that there are opportunities and they need to be used. Our goal is to maximize the set of proposals for the Azerbaijani market from the side of the Russian companies and for the Russian market from the Azerbaijani side,” Repik said.
The 9th Azerbaijan-Russia Interregional forum started its work in Baku Sept. 27.
The event is aimed at developing trade, economic and humanitarian ties between the regions of the two countries and will become a platform for joint work of Russia and Azerbaijan, including the relevant ministers, extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassadors of both countries, the business community and experts.
