Latvia Interested in Purchasing Azerbaijani securities –Latvian Bank Chairman
Azerbaijan, Baku / corr. Trend U.Ismayilova / Aldis Reims, the chairman of the managing board of the Latvian bank Baltikums stated at the Azerbaijan-Latvian business forum in Baku that the Latvian banking sector is interested in Azerbaijan's fiscal market to purchase state securities.
"The Azerbaijan state securities boast a very reasonable rate with the consideration of hard currency due to the oil capital," he said. Latvia is an EU country and it is difficult to earn here at high rates.
