The Minister of Economy stated that the economic cooperation between Azerbaijan and Great Britain has expanded, and various documents signed between our countries have created favorable conditions for the active participation of British investors in various sectors of Azerbaijan's economy. It was noted that Britain is the leader in terms of the volume of investment in Azerbaijan. British companies are also interested in the implementation of "green" energy projects in our liberated territories.

It was stated that great importance is attached to open dialogue and mutual broad exchange of ideas with business representatives, including the British Chambers of Commerce in Azerbaijan.
