Azerbaijan plans to start exporting textile to Poland, Azerbaijan's trade representative in Poland Nemat Nagdaliyev told Trend.
He noted that the Polish and Azerbaijani sides are currently discussing the matter.
"There is a great demand for textile products on the Polish market. We studied this market, and now we consider exports from Azerbaijan to Poland economically viable and promising. To date, contacts have already been established between the Baku Textile Factory and Polish partners, and we plan to export Azerbaijani textiles to this European country in the medium term," Nagdaliyev said.
The Azerbaijani trade representative noted that negotiations are currently underway in this direction and details of the upcoming bilateral cooperation are being discussed.
"At the present stage, certain agreements have been reached between the Baku Textile Factory and Polish companies on several types of textile exports.
