For the first time in the last 10 years, wool was exported to Russia via Azexport.az portal
60 ton of wool was exported to Russia via Azexport.az portal of the Center for Analysis of Economic Reforms and Communication. The export was conducted by the resident of Zagatala, entrepreneur Alihuseyn Shirinli. According to the official statistics, over the past 10 years, wool was not exported from Azerbaijan to Russia.
The member of the first disability category, A. Shirinli has been cooperating with Azexport.az portal since August, 2018 which was very successful for him. During this period, he was informed about the potential orders, current technical barriers in the export market and all export procedures in Azerbaijan. A. Shirinli, who sent his first product to Russia, stated that he would continue to cooperate with the portal and increase the volume of exports. According to Shirinli, with the export profit he will expand the existing production field and create new job opportunities.
It should be noted that wool production has increased in the Republic of Azerbaijan in recent years, however there are some problems related to the export. Azexport.az portal contributes to increase the volume of wool export, as well as to expand the export area by this export process.
The head of Azexport.az portal, Zaur Gardashov added that the export and business conditions established in the country allow everyone even disabled people to receive high income if they have a wish, intention and diligence. Azexport.az portal provides equal opportunities for everyone. Moreover, as a digital platform, Azexport.az portal helps the entrepreneurs to get access to the foreign markets, as well as to obtain export permits and provides support in logistics, marketing, and more. It is not difficult to introduce big business to the market; the main issue is to provide access for small and medium-sized enterprises to the market which is the main direction of Azexport.az portal.
Azexport.az portal of the Center for Analysis of Economic Reforms and Communication was established according to the Decree of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan on “Establishment of single database of the goods produced in the Republic of Azerbaijan” dated September 21, 2016. The portal provides the entrepreneurs with the opportunities to export the goods produced in our country to traditional and new markets via the international e-trading platforms.
