“Currently we have a project regarding the delivery of agricultural machines amounting to several million euros,” said the Austrian Bank.

RBI said it is a long term partner of banks in Azerbaijan providing correspondent relations to them, thus enabling local banks to process their international payments in euros and other main currencies.

“Cooperating in the field of Trade Finance, we support delivery of goods and services to Azerbaijan and its economy. This support is especially important considering investment goods such as machines and equipment,” said the bank.
