AZPROMO: Actively strengthening ties with Japan

AZPROMO is the Export and Investment Promotion Agency of the Republic of Azerbaijan. Operating under Azerbaijan’s Ministry of Economy, AZPROMO serves as a one-stop shop for foreign investors and is actively strengthening ties with Japan.

The agency assists companies and investors in establishing a presence in Azerbaijan, finding suitable local partners, identifying raw material sources, presenting investment projects and providing ongoing aftercare support.

As a member of the World Association of Investment Promotion Agencies, AZPROMO holds the status of regional director for Central Asia.

Additionally, the agency focuses on promoting nonoil exports under the “Made in Azerbaijan” brand by supporting local exporters through export promotion mechanisms.

These include organizing export missions, participating in international exhibitions and fairs through a single-country stand, conducting market research and helping to obtain international certifications.

As both a trade promotion organization and an investment promotion agency, AZPROMO stands out as the main institution in Azerbaijan organizing international events, such as bilateral and multilateral business and investment forums.

Foodex Japan 2024

In 2024, with AZPROMO’s support, Azerbaijani products have already been showcased in four global trade fairs, and plans are in place to secure the participation of Azerbaijani entrepreneurs in seven more fairs and exhibitions, including the significant Foodex Japan show scheduled at Tokyo Big Sight from March 5 to 8.

This aligns with Azerbaijan’s export diversification policy, which aims to expand shipments to East Asia, particularly Japan. The plan includes showcasing Azerbaijan’s processed agricultural products, including canned and dried fruits and vegetables, along with famous Azerbaijani wines and more.

Participating in Foodex Japan 2024 is a crucial step for Azerbaijani entrepreneurs to tap into the Japanese market, which holds substantial potential for our nonoil products.

Yusif Abdullayev, Executive Director of AZPROMO

AZPROMO Executive Director Yusif Abdullayev said Foodex Japan is a key stepping stone to increasing Azerbaijani exports to Japan.

“Participating in Foodex Japan 2024 is a crucial step for Azerbaijani entrepreneurs to tap into the Japanese market, which holds substantial potential for our nonoil products,” Abdullayev said.

“We believe this exhibition will contribute significantly to the 20% increase we have already seen in Azerbaijan’s nonoil exports to Japan last year and will further strengthen our economic ties with this important market.”
