Czech Senators on the official visit to Baku

Vice-president of the Czech Senate Mr. Jiri Sestak led the delegation of the Senate committee on economy, agriculture and transport on its official visit to Azerbaijan during 22nd – 25th October 2017. The Czech delegation was received by the deputy speaker of the Parliament of Azerbaijan and head of the Czech-Azerbaijan inter-parliamentary friendship group Mr. Valeh Aleskerov. During the meeting both parties representatives agreed that bilateral relations on parliamentary and governmental level are very good and the number of areas, where the mutual cooperation is going on, grows. Important role in that plays the Joint declaration on strategic partnership, which presidents Milos Zeman and Ilham Aliyev signed in September 2015.

Aside from the visit to the Parliament of Azerbaijan the official program of the delegation included meeting with deputy minister of economy Mr. Sahil Babayev, deputy minister of agriculture Mr. Seyfaddin Talibov and deputy head of Azerbaijani Railways Mr. Alirza Suleymanov. During the discussions with those respective institutions new propositions for the future joint project were identified. By all means there is much in the sphere of cooperation between the Czech Republic and Azerbaijan to follow up on. For example reconstruction of the Azerbaijani part of Baku – Tbilisi – Kars railway corridor, which is being realized by the Czech company Moravia Steel is nearing its completion. In the scope of the project the railway tracks in Azerbaijan has been upgraded with the high quality rails produced by Trinecke zelezarny.
