A delegation of Azerbaijani entrepreneurs led by Chairman and Group CEO of the Caspian European Club/Caspian Energy Telman Aliyev has attended the Georgia-Azerbaijan Business Forum organized by the EU-Georgia Business Council.
The business forum, aimed mainly at developing business relations between Georgia and Azerbaijan, heard speeches from First Deputy Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia Ekaterine Mikabadze, Ambassador of Azerbaijan to Georgia Dursun Hasanov, General Director of SOCAR Energy Georgia Mahir Mammadov, Member of the Board of Directors of Pasha Bank Georgia Asaf Huseynov, Chairman of AZEBI Nariman Gurbanov, Chairman and CEO of the Caspian European Club/Caspian Energy Telman Aliyev and many others.
Addressing the forum, Telman Aliyev highlighted the activity of the Caspian European Club and the format of events which promote an establishment of the permanent platform for an international business-networking. “The relationship between Georgia and Azerbaijan can serve as an example for other countries. The joint implementation of regional projects by Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey should serve as momentum for holding much more active business cooperation”, Telman Aliyev added.
“The Azerbaijani business is broadly represented in Georgia. To our regret, I can’t say the same thing about presence of the Georgian business on the Azerbaijani market. The Caspian European Club is ready to undertake this mission and facilitate an entry of the Georgian companies into the market of Azerbaijan, Georgia, Uzbekistan and other countries where we have strong positions,” Telman Aliyev said.
“We plan to scale up an activity of the Caspian European Club, and on April 3 we will hold a B2B forum dedicated to the construction sector. We also plan to arrange business tours to regions of Georgia, aimed at visiting leading production enterprises and attractive tourism facilities. Organized in the course of these business tours B2B forums and CEO Lunch events will also be held with the participation of heads of these regions”, Telman Aliyev concluded.
EU-Georgia Business Council in cooperation with Georgian and Azerbaijani partners, plans to hold the aforementioned forum annually, and it is scheduled to take place in Baku in 2021.
