Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 17
By Huseyn Veliyev – Trend:
The preliminary agreements on cooperation between the business circles of Mongolia and Azerbaijan have been reached, the Director of Neuron Technologies company Ismail Alekberov told Trend.
Alekberov noted that about 20 local export companies have taken part in a business forum organized as part of an export mission. The Azerbaijani delegation was led by Deputy Minister of Economy of Azerbaijan Niyazi Safarov, who held meetings with the head of state and with the ministers of Mongolia.
“The business negotiations continue. The held meetings can be called fruitful. The proposed IT solutions have aroused great interest of the Mongolian colleagues. We can definitely say that the digital transformation process in this country is just being established. In Mongolia, many projects are expected to be implemented in the area of construction of “e-government”. It is not improbable that we will be able to introduce the Azerbaijani model of the ASAN Service in this country," Alekberov said.
In addition, the director of the Neuron Technologies company said, the implementation of such major projects as "e-education", "e-health" and "e-agriculture" is also expected in Mongolia.
"Mongolia is a developing country in Central Asia and the Far East. The country pays special attention to the agricultural sector. Despite the fact that the country’s area is about 1.6 million square kilometers, the population of Mongolia slightly exceeds three million people. A lot of infrastructure projects are being implemented in Mongolia, and many countries are interested in being present in this market," Alekberov said.
Alekberov noted that Azerbaijan and Mongolia have established quite fruitful contacts and the meetings held within the framework of the export mission will only serve to strengthen cooperation between the two countries.
“The day before, we held B2B meetings, a business forum, met with state authorities of Mongolia. The Neuron Technologies company offered its solutions in specific areas, in particular for agricultural sectors. For example, there are more than 60 million heads of cattle and small cattle in Mongolia. We proposed to introduce an animal identification system - Personal Identification System of Animals, which aroused the interest of our colleagues. In addition, we also offer solutions for the education sector, and the cooperation issues were discussed with the leadership of the IT association of Mongolia and with large IT companies of this country. We have been offered specific projects that will be implemented jointly," Alekberov said.
The export mission to Mongolia was organized through the Azerbaijan Export & Investment Promotion Foundation (AZPROMO). During the visit of the mission in Ulan Bator, an Azerbaijan-Mongolia business forum was held, the meetings with officials of this country, as well as the B2B meetings between representatives of business entities of the two countries were held.
The parties discussed issues of expanding cooperation between entrepreneurs of Azerbaijan and Mongolia, the possibility of exporting Azerbaijani products to this country.
