A delegation of Azerbaijani companies operating in clothing industry will visit Italian province of Bari from December 10-14, 2013, Manuela Traldi, president of the Azerbaijan-Italy Trade Institute said during a meeting with representatives of the Azerbaijan Entrepreneurs Confederation (AEC) in Baku, Azerbaijan Press Agency reported.
At the meeting, the Institute and the AEC agreed to prepare a list of companies that are interested in accessing Italian and Azerbaijani markets.
Mammad Musayev, president of AEC, urged the Italian companies to be active in Azerbaijan, and expressed confidence that the Italian products would be in demand in Azerbaijan.
He said the AEC is ready to act as a bridge between Azerbaijani and Italian companies and support the activities of Italian firms in Azerbaijan.
He further said that through Azerbaijan, Italian products could also gain access to the markets of neighbouring countries.
AEC is planning to create a new desk for assisting registration of foreign companies in Azerbaijan, he informed.
In May this year, Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev inaugurated the Gilan Textile Park in Sumgayit, situated at about 30 km from the capital Baku. The textile park has weaving, dyeing and garment factories. The park also has separate lines for production of blankets and linen. 
Some amount of cotton is grown in Azerbaijan, and the country has already invested in polypropylene and petrochemical plants.
Italy, on the other hand, has a well-established textile and clothing industry.
Azerbaijan-Italy Trade Institute was established in 2012 for developing economic and business cooperation between the two countries.
