Washington Hosts US-Azerbaijan Economic Partnership Commission Meeting

A meeting of the U.S.-Azerbaijan Economic Partnership Commission will be held in Washington, D.C. April 18-20, according to Azerbaijani Foreign Ministry spokesman Elman Abdullayev.

According to Abdullayev, Azerbaijan will be represented at the meeting by a delegation headed by Finance Minister, Samir Sharifov, who is the co-chairman of the intergovernmental commission on the Azerbaijani side.

On the U.S. side, the intergovernmental commission is headed by Under Secretary for Economic Growth, Energy, and the Environment, Robert D. Hormats. The parties will discuss development and prospects of intergovernmental relations.

In 2011, Azerbaijan imported goods worth $328 million from the United States, 30 per-cent more than in 2010, when its imports totaled $253 million.

The Azerbaijan government defines agriculture, information and communication technologies, transport and tourism as the priority areas of its economy.

"U.S. companies can play a key role in the development of these sectors of the economy," Hormats said earlier.
