I think it is important to further increase exchanges between the two countries in order to increase the trade turnover, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Japan to Azerbaijan Junichi Wada said in an interview with APA.
"Due to the fact that the government of Azerbaijan continues to take measures to reduce dependence on oil and natural gas resources and diversify the industry, I hope that the Japanese government and Japanese companies will have the opportunity to cooperate with Azerbaijani companies, and the number of Japanese companies entering the Azerbaijani market will increase.
In particular, "green energy" and tourism areas are at the center of attention. In addition, the role of Azerbaijan, the regional center of seaports, in the market covering 130 million people with a radius of 1000 km and being the intersection of the logistics route along the East-West and North-South routes continues to grow and as far as I know, the government of Azerbaijan continues the work related to international logistics at a high pace.
I hope that Japanese companies will also take advantage of these geographical features to develop their business," noted the ambassador.
