MOSCOW, May 23. /TASS/. Azerbaijan is interested in buying Russian-made farm machinery, Pyotr Fradkov, the chairman of the Russian-Azerbaijani Business Council and director general of the Russian Exports Center, told TASS on Monday.
"Azerbaijani partners demonstrate interest in agricultural machine-building. They want to buy combines or other machines from Rostselmash and Voronezhselmash plants," he said, adding that the latter company turns out an innovative product - color separating machines.
According to Fradkov, Russian companies, in turn, are demonstrating interest in the dynamically developing Azerbaijani market, especially such of its segments as electricity generation, agricultural and transport machine-building, ship-building, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, and joint infrastructure projects.

"First of all, I would like to note projects in the area of railway car-building. In 2015, we considerably increased exports of Russian-made railway cars to Azerbaijan. Uralvagonzavod received financial and non-financial support from the Russian Exports Center," he said, adding that projects in the area of car-building and gas supplies. "We are now in positive dynamics from the point of view of increasing exports of Russian-made products to Azerbaijan," he noted.
