“I think we left a good impression,” the prime minister told reporters after a two-day visit to Baku, where the Serbian delegation met with officials of the Azerbaijani government and companies.

Potential Azerbaijani investors were also presented projects on creation of free economic zones in the Serbian town of Cacak and Kraljevo.

The trade turnover between the two countries in 2014 amounted to $3.84 million, according to the State Statistics Committee of Azerbaijan.

Serbia exports agricultural products, equipment and pumps for the oil and gas industry, as well as furniture and building materials to Azerbaijan.
