In recent days, it has become known about a new agreement between Russia and Azerbaijan, opening the Russian market for the import of edible eggs and poultry products from Azerbaijan. This agreement was reached during the working visit of the head of Rosselkhoznadzor Sergei Dankvert to Azerbaijan.
According to information received from the press service of Rosselkhoznadzor, “the main result of the negotiations was the opening of the Russian market for the import of food eggs from Azerbaijan, as well as the approval of the start of supplies of poultry products.” This important agreement opens up new trade opportunities between the two countries and contributes to the development of Azerbaijan's agricultural sector.
However, it should be noted that before sending goods to Russia, mandatory state monitoring of goods will be carried out. This guarantees high quality and safety of products supplied from Azerbaijan. The competent agency of Azerbaijan will provide the necessary data for this monitoring.
This agreement will become a new impetus for the development of Russian-Azerbaijani trade relations in the field of agriculture. Over the last 10 months of 2023, exports of agricultural products from Azerbaijan to Russia have already increased by 11.3% compared to the same period last year. This growth was driven by increased supplies of hazelnuts, peaches, strawberries and wild strawberries. In addition, Azerbaijan is one of the leading suppliers of persimmons, tomatoes, cherries, sweet cherries and apples to Russia.
This agreement opens up new prospects for Azerbaijani producers of eggs and poultry products. The Russian market offers enormous potential for expanding exports and increasing profits. In addition, this agreement will also contribute to the development of Azerbaijan's agricultural sector, creating new jobs and improving the lives of rural residents.
Thus, the opening of the Russian market for the supply of eggs and poultry products from Azerbaijan is an important step in the development of trade relations between the two countries. This agreement will help strengthen Azerbaijan's agricultural sector and create new opportunities for its producers.
