EU backs Azerbaijan WTO accession efforts

Azerbaijan WTO accession: The European Union is ready to make every effort to help Azerbaijan through the WTO accession process, the EU’s press office said on Friday.
Azerbaijan applied to join the WTO in 1997 and, according to the EU, still needs to reform its customs and competition laws.“The EU recognizes the work already undertaken by Azerbaijan in recent years toward WTO conformity and is looking forward to Azerbaijan’s completion of the remaining reform measures envisaged under the WTO accession procedure.
“These reforms cover the legal, policy, and institutional framework which bring remaining non-conforming aspects of Azerbaijan’s foreign trade regime in line with the WTO agreements.”
