He hailed relations between the two countries’ business communities. Mustafayev said Saudi companies have invested $370 million in Azerbaijan`s economy so far, according to AzerTag.

“Through the successful financial cooperation with the Saudi Fund for Development, we have constructed schools, canals, and roads and are now implementing a project of reconstruction of water supply and sanitation systems,” the minister said.

Mustafayev noted that Azerbaijan welcomes the Riyadh Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s proposal to establish a joint business council with Azerbaijan with the aim of developing bilateral relations in a variety of areas.
