Acting Consul General of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mustafayev Shohrat Rustam oglu visited the Tyumen region on May 12-13. This is his first official visit after his appointment. At the meeting with Deputy Governor of the Tyumen Region Andrey Panteleev, the parties confirmed their mutual interest in cooperation in the trade, economic and humanitarian spheres, paying special attention to increasing mutual trade, industrial cooperation, development of logistics chains, expansion of cultural and tourist ties.

The Tyumen Region and Azerbaijan are united by a similar economy and a developed fuel and energy complex. Participation in the Tyumen Oil and Gas Cluster is a good opportunity for Azerbaijani companies to develop their business and reach Russian customers. Deputy Governor Andrey Panteleev invited representatives of the Consulate General to take part in the Tyumen Oil and Gas Forum in September 2022, which has long gone beyond the regional event and gathers more and more Russian and foreign experts, heads of major oil and gas companies every year.
It is worth noting that the well-known Azerbaijani geologist Farman Salmanov made a great contribution to the discovery of oil fields in Western Siberia. On May 12, the grand opening of the bust to the famous discoverer of Tyumen oil took place at the Tyumen Industrial University. The initiator was the Azerbaijani Diaspora with the support of the university.

At the end of the visit, Mustafayev Shohrat Rustam oglu and Chairman of the Committee on Nationalities Vladislav Chernov laid flowers at the Eternal Flame Memorial, honoring the memory of all Soviet citizens who participated in the Great Patriotic War.
