H.E. Mr. Akram Zeynalli
Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the People’s Republic of China
On the occasion of (China) Eurasia Commodity and Trade Online Expo 2021, I would like to offer my warmest congratulations to the organizers and extend cordial greetings to all participants attending this event both from China and abroad. Especially in these difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic and of all other challenges it brought to our lives, this year’s online Expo provides a valuable platform to cope with the consequences of the pandemic and connects businesses from all around the world to establish mutually beneficial partnerships.
Undoubtedly, expos organized in Azerbaijan and in China in various fields are essential in terms of boosting bilateral trade and economic relations as well as for establishing strong and mutually beneficial cooperation between the companies from both countries. In this regard, it should be mentioned that Azerbaijan has always been well represented in major trade fairs and expos all around China, and China-Eurasia Expo is not an exception in this regard. The delegation of the Republic of Azerbaijan participating in the first edition of China-Eurasia Expo in 2011 was headed by then Deputy Prime Minister and co-chair of the Azerbaijan-China Intergovernmental Commission on Trade and Economic Cooperation. Since then, Azerbaijan has been represented in this Expo for several times with participation of many domestic companies and large pavilions, which is a clear indicator of our special attention towards China-Eurasia Expo. It should be noted that Azerbaijan set up the biggest national pavilion in the 6th China-Eurasia Expo in 2018 and 25 companies from our country will take part in this year’s online Expo. We are confident that our continuous and effective participation in China-Eurasia Expo will help to promote Azerbaijani products in China and will further contribute to our improving trade relations.
I am firmly confident that (China) Eurasia Commodity and Trade Online Expo 2021will achieve all its objectives and will play its significant role in further promoting a win-win economic cooperation.
Best wishes for the success of the Expo!
