"The EU is eager to be Azerbaijan's partner in the non-oil sector. We see the significant reforms being carried out to develop the non-oil sector in Azerbaijan," said head of the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan Malena Mard as she addressed the 3rd Azerbaijan-EU business forum in Baku.
"A wide range of fields of activity will come together according to a new agreement which is expected to be signed between the European Union and Azerbaijan," Mard said.
"The sides are currently collaborating on the base of Cooperation and Partnership agreement, however a lot has happened after the signing of the document. We should come together and work to build a new legal framework. This agreement will enable us to take maximum advantage of new opportunities.
