Türkiye’s exports of clothing to Azerbaijan have increased significantly over the previous five years, increasing by more than 150%, and its exports of fabrics have also increased significantly. Türkiye is finding increasing success selling its textiles in Azerbaijan. Mikayil Jabbarov, the minister of economics of Azerbaijan, stated in a tweet that “the implementation of the document will give a further impetus for increasing the trade turnover with the brotherly country.”
