Azerbaijan intends to increase export of food products to Tajikistan, executive director of the Azerbaijan Export and Investment Promotion Agency (AZPROMO) Yusif Abdullayev said in a statement to journalists on the sidelines of the Azerbaijan-Tajikistan business forum held in Baku Monday, Report informs.

According to him, Tajikistan’s total imports of food products amount to about $950 million.

“Unfortunately, trade relations with Tajikistan are small. Our annual turnover is only around $6 million. This turnover must definitely be increased. Azerbaijan mainly supplies sugar and cottonseed oil to Tajikistan. This country’s annual import of cottonseed oil is 116,000 tons. Our share here is not too large. We intend to increase the supply of cotton oil to Tajikistan to a thousand tons,” said the head of AZPROMO.
