The delegation included representatives of MOK LLC (confectionery and equipment for their production), Rassvet AO (protective coatings for cars and ships), and Uspekh LLC (agricultural and municipal equipment) companies.

As part of the mission, a meeting was held with Russia’s Trade Representative in Azerbaijan Ruslan Mirsayapov, and the head of the Russian Export Center representative office in Azerbaijan, Nuri Guliyev.

During the meeting, Stavropol region’s representatives presented their expert-oriented products, exchanged issues of interest, and received detailed recommendations on working in the Azerbaijani market.

Ruslan Mirsayapov spoke about the activities of the trade representation to support Russian exporters and underlined the importance of participation of enterprises of the Stavropol region in international exhibitions held in Azerbaijan, in particular, Caspian Agro and InterFood Azerbaijan, slated for May 2023.

Moreover, within the framework of the business mission, entrepreneurs held B2B negotiations with specialized Azerbaijani companies and visited BakuBuild, AquaTherm, and Rebuild Karabakh international exhibitions in Baku.

As a result of the negotiations, Azerbaijani companies showed interest in cooperation with the enterprises of the Stavropol region, and the parties agreed to send commercial proposals and continue negotiations.
