Our business would like to visit your country to become familiar with these projects not only in Sofia but also in other Bulgarian cities, the Ambassador Karimov said.
Minister Loukarsky expressed the Ministry of Economy readiness to organize the Bulgarian-Azerbaijani business forum and to arrange a visit of Azerbaijani delegation to our country.
