India is among 5 top trade partners of Azerbaijan and trade turnover surge of 155 percent registered last year is a good sign of this, said the newly appointed Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of India Sridharan Madhusudhanan as he presented his credentials to President Ilham Aliyev. Sridharan Madhusudhanan noted that there is a great potential for expansion of economic cooperation between the two countries given India has a strong economy too. He mentioned the oil and pharmaceutical industries in this respect. At the same time, the ambassador pointed out that multiculturalism prevailing in Azerbaijan is very attractive for India, and highlighted the importance of enhancing humanitarian relations. The diplomat touched upon the cooperation in the tourism sector, saying he would spare no effort to further cooperation in information technologies, energy, education, environment and other fields.
