"Work is ongoing to create a service and overhaul center for Mi helicopters at Silk Way Helicopter Services (SWHS) in Azerbaijan," it said.

Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov met his Azeri counterpart Shakhin Mustafayev and said the bilateral turnover comprised 561 mln dollars in January-March 2019 which is a 10-percent increase against the same period in the previous year. Export grew 7.3 percent to 412 mln dollars and import upped 20 percent to 150 mln dollars.

Manturov said truck construction is an important cooperation sphere. "We successfully implement a KamAZ truck project together with Gyandzha car works and KaMAZ plans to expand the line of trucks by heavy KamAZ-65117 prime movers and KamAZ-6520 heavy dump trucks," he said.
