The SBC, which was established in 1979, is a non-profit government agency aiming to develop and support small and medium business.

Zeynalov said the cooperation with the SBC was discussed at a meeting between the State Fund’s management and South Korea’s Ambassador to Azerbaijan Choi Suk-inn in Baku.
