Washington D.C. – March 26, 2007 - The U.S.-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (USACC) will host its 2nd annual trade mission to the Republic of Azerbaijan on May 21-26, 2007 for leading U.S. firms specializing in the food and agriculture sector. The trade mission will feature a host of field visits to food and agricultural facilities in Azerbaijan, as well as meetings with senior government officials and industry representatives, including special luncheons with regional governors, city mayors, the minister of agriculture and the minister of economic development.

The economy of Azerbaijan is currently the fastest growing economy in the world and the USACC trade mission is an ideal opportunity for U.S. firms to explore this fast-growing market in Azerbaijan, study available investment projects and secure contracts with Azerbaijani importers, suppliers and producers of diverse food and agricultural products and equipment. The mission is designed specifically to help U.S. firms establish long-term partnerships with Azerbaijani firms, identify potential investment projects and find reliable buyers and/or suppliers of valuable agricultural products from Azerbaijan and the Caspian Sea region.

USACC will also sponsor a U.S.-Azerbaijan Agribusiness Forum and the trade mission will coincide with the 13th Azerbaijan International Food, Drinks and Packaging Exhibition (InterFood Azerbaijan 2007), which will take place in Baku on May 23-25. All delegates will have the opportunity to showcase their companies and product lines at the USACC stand. The mission is supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Ministry of Agriculture of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
