Azerbaijan, Pakistan’s brotherly Islamic neighbor, eliminated the levy on rice imports.
Rice imported to Azerbaijan from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan is exempt from a 15% import customs fee, according to Azerbaijani media on Tuesday.
Rice from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan with the same origin is duty-free till December 31, 2027. The necessary decision came from the Cabinet of Ministers.

In a tweet, Azerbaijan’s ambassador to Pakistan, Khazar Farhadov, called the decision “critical.” He stated that it will significantly improve commerce and economic activities between the two countries.
