We continue to work hard for all our companies based of the principle of inclusiveness. We attach a special importance to our friend Azerbaijan, which is also a special place for all Turkish companies. We will surely increase our exports to Azerbaijan thanks to effective communication and visibility in the fair as well as the willingness of Azerbaijani companies to import products from Turkey as we observed during the sectoral trade delegation organization.”
