Azerbaijan plans to send its first trade mission to Pakistan in late January – early February 2017, Azerbaijani Economy Minister Shahin Mustafayev said.
“The purpose behind sending the mission is to expand bilateral trade with Pakistan”, Mustafayev said.
Azerbaijan has been sending trade missions to various countries since November in order to increase its exports. In particular, missions have already been organized to China and the UAE, and it is planned to send a mission to Egypt before late 2016.
Trade turnover between Azerbaijan and Pakistan amounted to $5.82 million in January-October, up 3.6 times YoY, according to the State Customs Committee of Azerbaijan. (Trend/Business World Magazine)
