Azer Khudiyev emphasized that Azerbaijan and Ukraine intend to increase trade turnover up to $1 billion in 2018.
"In mid-March we are planning to open Azerbaijan's Trade House in Kyiv. We have already found premises in the center of Kyiv, and now the matter is in the stage of documentation. Respective repairs are being conducted simultaneously," Khudiyev said.
According to him, the head of the Trade House has already been elected, and he is currently engaged in the formation of his apparatus.
"The Trade House will showcase and sell products of domestic production, as well as coordinate imports, exports and re-exports. We also plan to analyze the market, identify priority areas of cooperation, and provide legal support for Azerbaijani business companies," the ambassador said.
“I am sure that this will be a good platform not only for Azerbaijani business, but also for the development of Ukrainian business. Ukraine has many interesting products and projects, which Central Asian and Iranian markets need to import and export. But this is not possible for a number of reasons. I think that these opportunities can be realized through Azerbaijan and the newly opened Baku International Sea Trade Port”, the Azerbaijani ambassador added.
