Gumru Eyvazova and Sabina Gasimova attended the EU-Azerbaijan Business Forum

The EU-Azerbaijan Business Forum was held in Baku on 13 June 2019. The annual event attracted a high turnout of over 800 participants, including government representatives and business leaders, who engage in panel discussions and business-to-business meetings. The forum serves as a significant platform for discussing the prospects of economic cooperation on a broader agenda and mutual trade and investment opportunities between Azerbaijan and the European Union. The Business Forum entailed a plenary session on the business climate, attended by Mr. Rufat Mammadov, Deputy Minister of Economy, Mr. Vusal Gasimli, Executive Director of Centre for Analysis of Economic Reforms and Communication, and high-level representatives from EU and Azerbaijani public and private organisations. This year, the Business Forum integrated sector-specific panel discussions featuring Agriculture, Connectivity (Transport, Logistics, and ICT), and Tourism. The debates focused on the latest economic developments, business opportunities and challenges in the respective sectors, with an attendance of state officials from ministries and public institutions as well as a variety of industry experts.

The annual EU-Azerbaijan Business Forum is a unique platform of discussion on the business climate and investment opportunities on the ground. The event provides an excellent opportunity for European and Azerbaijani companies to establish direct contact with credible business partners and aims at further strengthening EU-Azerbaijan business relations.

The EU-Azerbaijan Business Forum was organised by the Delegation of the European Union to Azerbaijan, in collaboration with the German-Azerbaijani Chamber of Commerce (AHK Azerbaijan) and the Azerbaijan Export and Investment Promotion Foundation (AZPROMO).
