The trade with Hun­gary amounted to $ 20.12 mil­lion in Jan­uary-July 2017, ac­cord­ing to the State Cus­toms Com­mit­tee of Azer­bai­jan.

Azer­bai­jan is keen to pen­e­trate widely in the in­ter­na­tional com­mod­ity mar­kets with its prod­ucts branded ‘Made in Azer­bai­jan’.

As of to­day, 92 trade­marks of Azer­bai­jan are pro­tected un­der the ‘Made in Azer­bai­jan’ brand, while the coun­try’s to­tal out­puts nears 250 kinds of prod­ucts in food, light, heavy and con­struc­tion in­dus­tries. The brand is highly suc­cess­ful in re­gional and world mar­kets, and Azer­bai­jan’s lo­cal out­put meets all the nec­es­sary stan­dards.

Since the be­gin­ning of the year Azer­bai­jan has al­ready sent ex­port mis­sions to Qatar (in Fe­bru­ary) and Kaza­khstan (in April), as well as to Ger­many, Afghanistan and Pak­istan.

Ex­port op­er­a­tions to China, Dubai, Afghanistan, Pak­istan, Qatar, Ger­many and Kaza­khstan with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of lo­cal pro­duc­ers was or­ga­nized in 2016.
