Newest Kazakh electric locomotives will soon arrive in Azerbaijan. According to the Center for Economic Reforms Analysis of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan is increasing the volumes of its export products. The growth of exports from the Azerbaijani side was also noted. Both Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan plan to increase mutual trade turnover. The parties have already prepared a corresponding roadmap.
RUFAT MAMMADOV, PRESIDENT, AZERBAIJAN EXPORT AND INVESTMENT PROMOTION FOUNDATION:
- We are planning another export mission to the regions of Kazakhstan. We want to supply Kazakhstan with not only agricultural products and food products, but also manufactured goods. We invited the Kazakh producers, distributors and companies to Azerbaijan. Several of them visited us and concluded agreements with Azerbaijani partners. Mutual visits will be organized regularly.
Electric locomotives of the Kazakh assembly will start to drive along the railways of Georgia. The delegation from Kazakhstan met with the leadership of the Department of Georgian Railway on the delivery of equipment. Participants of the talks noted that there could be difficulties due to the territorial remoteness of the two countries, but Kazakhstan is ready to offer Georgia the most favorable conditions for cooperation in this area.
BERNARD PEILLE, CEO, ELECTRIC LOCOMOTIVES ASSEMBLY FACTORY:
- We had a very constructive dialogue with our Georgian colleagues about the delivery of locomotives of the Kazakh assembly to Georgia. As you may know, they are based in Astana. We considered the option of developing cooperation so that Georgia will choose us as the main supplier of the Georgian railway.
Also, Kazakhstan intends to supply mineral fertilizers and provide services for the development of aquatic crops in Georgia. Representatives of the Ministry of Agriculture of Georgia held negotiations with their Kazakh counterparts.
