BABC Supports UKTI Trade Mission to Azerbaijan

LONDON, August 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


The Britain Azerbaijan Business Council (BABC) is pleased to support the UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) multi-sector Market Visit to Azerbaijan from 30 September to 2 October. This new initiative will bring together interested delegates from the United Kingdom for further investment opportunities in Azerbaijan's rapidly growing infrastructure, high tech/ICT and education sectors.

The UK is the largest foreign investor in Azerbaijan and with British businesses already well-established in the country's oil and gas sectors, the upcoming Market Visit will enable interested delegates to explore business opportunities in these other key sectors. Participants will attend an in-market briefing and business networking reception, as well as pursuing their own business interests during the three day visit. The UKTI's Overseas Market Introduction Service will help delegates to source potential business partners or customers and arrange meetings.

Lyndsay Howard, Director at the BABC, said: "We are proud to support the UKTI multi-sector Market Visit to Azerbaijan. The UKTI delegation will further Azerbaijan's drive toward economic diversification of the non-oil economy with UK technology, training and know-how. The BABC continues its mission to deepen and diversify business dialogue and trade opportunities between the United Kingdom and Azerbaijan as well as recent efforts to bolster UK-Azerbaijan education exchange and capacity-building."
