WorldFood to pro­mote ex­port of goods non-tra­di­tional for Azer­bai­jan

Azer News - - Business - By La­man Is­may­ilova

Azer­bai­jani prod­ucts will be ex­hib­ited at the Worldfood Moscow In­ter­na­tional Food and Drinks Ex­hi­bi­tion sched­uled for Septem­ber 11-14.

More than 30 na­tional com­pa­nies will dis­play their prod­ucts at the coun­try's booth.

Vice Pres­i­dent of Azer­bai­jan Ex­port and In­vest­ment Pro­mo­tion Foun­da­tion (AZPROMO) Yusif Ab­dul­layev stated that WorldFood Moscow may con­trib­ute to the pro­mo­tion of ex­port of goods, which are non-tra­di­tional for Azer­bai­jan.

“Azer­bai­jan will be rep­re­sented in the WorldFood Moscow by a na­tional stand for the first time,” he told Trend on Septem­ber 5.“The na­tional stand will oc­cupy an area of 210 square meters, and prod­ucts of 32 com­pa­nies, mainly pro­duc­ers and ex­porters of food prod­ucts, will be show­cased. How­ever, there are prod­ucts which will be demon­strated for the first time, for ex­am­ple, ice cream.”

Ab­dul­layev noted that the ex­hi­bi­tion is very im­por­tant for Azer­bai­jani pro­duc­ers and ex­porters, since Rus­sia is one of the main trade part­ners of Azer­bai­jan and all Azer­bai­jani ex­porters first of all start op­er­at­ing in the Rus­sian mar­ket.

Rus­sia is one of the main trade and eco­nomic part­ners of Azer­bai­jan. Dur­ing the years of co­op­er­a­tion, both coun­tries signed more than 170 dif­fer­ent doc­u­ments, more than 50 of which af­fected the eco­nomic sphere.

To date, Azer­bai­jan has in­vested $1 bil­lion in the Rus­sian econ­omy, and Rus­sia $3 bil­lion in the econ­omy of Azer­bai­jan. The trade with Rus­sia in Jan­uary-July 2017 amounted to $1.1 bil­lion, $329 mil­lion of which was ex­ported to this coun­try, ac­cord­ing to the State Cus­toms Com­mit­tee of Azer­bai­jan.

Ab­dul­layev went on to say that the stand will also pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to get ac­quainted with the Azer­bai­jani cui­sine.“Vis­i­tors of the ex­hi­bi­tion will also be able to en­joy Azer­bai­jani mugham and na­tional dances,” he said.

A num­ber of agree­ments and mem­o­ran­dums are also ex­pected to be signed within the frame­work of the ex­hi­bi­tion, he noted.

WorldFood Moscow takes place at the city’s Ex­pocen­tre. The event was launched in 1991. The ex­hi­bi­tion high level is cer­ti­fied by the sign of the UFI (The Global As­so­ci­a­tion of the Ex­hi­bi­tion In­dus­try).

The expo em­braces the en­tire food mar­ket and has 11 sec­tored ar­eas: meat and poul­try, fish and seafood, frozen prod­ucts and semipro­cessed foods, fruits and veg­eta­bles, con­fec­tions and baked goods, gro­ceries and snacks, preser­va­tion, fat-and-oil prod­ucts, dairy prod­ucts, tea and cof­fee, and drinks.

The WorldFood Moscow ex­hi­bi­tion serves as the best plat­form for in­tro­duc­ing new prod­ucts to the Rus­sian mar­ket.
