Azerbaijan and Croatia have great potential for diversification and increase in trade turnover, Azerbaijan’s Deputy Economy Minister Rufat Mammadov said, Trend reports.
He was speaking at the Azerbaijani-Croatian business forum in Baku.
He said that last year, the trade turnover between the countries grew by 16 percent, reaching $250 million. Mammadov noted that this pace can be considered satisfactory, but there is potential for growth in trade.
He added that a broad legal and contractual basis has been formed between the countries, noting that there are significant agreements in many areas, especially in the field of trade and the economy.
