The Head of the EU delegation noted that the EU and Azerbaijan are at the last stage of negotiations on the signing of a partnership agreement.

“There was a lot of progress in the negotiations on the new aviation agreement. We started new dialogues on transport and security last year. We signed a very important document on partnership priorities. Implementation of the Southern Gas Corridor project is going well. The EU remains the largest trading partner and investor in Azerbaijan. This year the EU-Azerbaijan Business Forum gathered a record number of participants. We have projects with almost all institutions in Azerbaijan in almost all social and economic spheres,” Jankauskas noted.
