During the meeting, Yusif Abdullayev, the executive director of AZPROMO, provided information about the agency's activities, mechanisms for promoting exports, including the "Made in Azerbaijan" brand, and the subsidisation of logistics. It was mentioned that a mission is being planned to export Azerbaijani products to Latvia with the aim of exploring and expanding the opportunities for local exporters to enter the Latvian market. Additionally, Latvian entrepreneurs have been invited to participate in the "InterFood Azerbaijan" exhibition in May of this year to ensure the entry of traditional Latvian food products into the Azerbaijani market.
