International press agents are giving a high assessment of the work ongoing in Azerbaijan, while the leading organizations analyzing credit ratings have upgraded Azerbaijan’s credit rating. This happened at a time when credit ratings of some European countries were downgraded. The experience of the last few years has been particularly positive because even in the years of the global financial and economic recession the Azerbaijani economy continued to develop, thus securing the development of our country.At the same time, Azerbaijan are seriously engaged in addressing social issues. Azerbaijan reforms in the economic sphere are underpinned by strong social policies. . Infrastructure projects have constantly been in the spotlight.

To this day, our president have carried out work to diversify the economy, ensure complete food security, strengthen our industrial capacity, increase the export potential, reduce the dependence on imports and improve the business environment. At the same time, Azerbaijan as investors, gain a lot of trust in many countries. Thanks to this confidence our export capacity to these countries will also increase in the future.
