Director of NaT IN, one of the largest wool importers in India, is on a visit to Baku, organized by the and the Azexport.az portal of the Economic Reform Analysis and Communication Center.
During the visit, the guests met with the directors of Farhad-91 LLC and Drujba LLC, one of the leading wool producers in Azerbaijan.
At the end of the discussions, the parties reached an initial agreement on the export of 5,000 tons of domestically produced wool with the technical indicators between 25-29 and 29-34 microns to India.
NaT IN for 35 years is engaged in wool imports to India from more than 17 countries, including New Zealand, Syria, Greece, Spain, Italy, Egypt and China.
The manager of Azexport portal, Aykhan Kadeshov, said that the launch of cooperation with one of the leading companies in the field, NaT IN, can be considered as the launch of a new stage for the export of Azerbaijani wool to India and other countries.
Despite the wool production in the Republic of Azerbaijan is increasing in recent years, there are some problems with its export. In 1985, about 11,000 tons of wool production was registered, 9,000 tons in 1995 and in 2015, about 17,000 tons of wool was produced. Wool producers do not know how and whom to sell the product they produce. Now, they are able to take advantage of Azexport portal.
