A unique brand makes its global debut in Azerbaijan
Aleks Kaplun, President and Chair of the Israeli-Azerbaijani Chamber of Commerce and Industry:
- Our Chamber has only been registered recently and has already engaged in an event of great importance by organizing the participation of 13 companies in BakuTel 2013. The Chamber of Commerce has assumed responsibility for all organizational matters and we have managed to attract the interest of Israeli ICT companies to the Azerbaijani market.
The theme of cybersecurity, from the security of corporate networks to protection from attacks by hackers, is well represented by the four companies we have brought to the exhibition. The highlight of our stand is the exposition by Life Watch. This company is running a prize draw for the brand new Medical Life Watch Android smartphone which has built-in sensors to monitor the wearer’s health. The draw will take place on 3 December. The owners of such smartphones can take advantage of the professional medical diagnosis of several diseases and your doctor can always control the health indicators of the Life Watch’s detectors. When several happy exhibition participants become the owners of these smartphones, the commencement of the company’s official sales in the stores of Baku City will be announced. What is unique is that the brand is making its global debut in Azerbaijan, with the active assistance of our Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The Israeli-Azerbaijani business forum, in which lectures and bilateral meetings with interested experts from the ICT sector will be conducted, will be held on 4 December in the business centre on Baku Boulevard. This will provide companies with an opportunity to establish prospective business relations.
The exhibition and the business forum are vitally important to the economic development of both countries, especially as our initiatives are supported by the Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies of the Republic of Azerbaijan under the government’s policy for the country in the Year of ICT.
