Azer News - - Nation - By Rashid Shiri­nov

The open­ing of Azer­bai­jan’s Busi­ness Cen­ter, built on the ini­tia­tive of the Heydar Aliyev Foun­da­tion, took place in the Rus­sian city of As­trakhan on May 31.

Vice Pres­i­dent of the Heydar Aliyev Foun­da­tion Leyla Aliyeva, Azer­bai­jani Pres­i­dent’s As­sis­tant for Pub­lic and Po­lit­i­cal Af­fairs, Head of Depart­ment Ali Hasanov, Gov­er­nor of Rus­sia’s As­trakhan Re­gion Alexan­der Zhilkin, Azer­bai­jan’s Econ­omy Min­is­ter Shahin Mustafayev, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Heydar Aliyev Cen­ter Anar Alak­barov, As­sis­tant to the First Vice-Pres­i­dent of Azer­bai­jan Yusuf Mam­madaliyev, Azer­bai­jan’s Am­bas­sador to Rus­sia Po­lad Bul­bu­loglu, Chair­man of Azer­bai­jan’s State Com­mit­tee for Work with Di­as­pora Fuad Mu­radov, Head of the Ex­ec­u­tive Power of the Na­ri­manov District of Baku Ab­din Farza­liyev, as well as busi­ness­men of the two coun­tries par­tic­i­pated in the open­ing of the busi­ness cen­ter.

They also got ac­quainted with the ex­hi­bi­tion of goods of Azer­bai­jani com­pa­nies pro­duced un­der the “Made in Azer­bai­jan” brand.

Azer­bai­jan’s Busi­ness Cen­ter is lo­cated at the 100 Baku Street in As­trakhan. The agree­ment on the con­struc­tion of the busi­ness cen­ter was signed in the frame­work of the 7th Azer­bai­jan-Rus­sia In­ter­re­gional Fo­rum held in Baku in Novem­ber 2016. The cen­ter’s ground­break­ing cer­e­mony was held in De­cem­ber 2016.

Mean­while, con­struc­tion of the As­trakhan Busi­ness Cen­ter is on­go­ing in Baku. The joint work of the two fa­cil­i­ties is aimed to ex­pand trade and eco­nomic and trans­port and lo­gis­tics re­la­tions be­tween Rus­sia's re­gion of As­trakhan and Azer­bai­jan. Busi­ness­men from other re­gions of Rus­sia will also be able to make use of the busi­ness plat­forms.

Azer­bai­jan is one of the main eco­nomic part­ners of Rus­sia among the CIS coun­tries. The trade turnover be­tween two coun­tries amounted to $2.14 bil­lion in 2017. This kind of co­op­er­a­tion plays an im­por­tant role in the de­vel­op­ment of Rus­sian-Azer­bai­jani trade and eco­nomic re­la­tions and in the in­crease of the trade turnover.

At present, en­ter­prises of more than 70 re­gions of Rus­sia co­op­er­ate di­rectly with Azer­bai­jan. Fifteen re­gions of Rus­sia have rel­e­vant agree­ments with Azer­bai­jan on trade and eco­nomic, sci­en­tific, tech­ni­cal and cul­tural co­op­er­a­tion.
