The Azerbaijan Competitiveness Forum (ACF) will aim to identify tangible steps that the public and private sectors in Azerbaijan and the U.S. can take to highlight the country’s strong fundamentals as well as opportunities to enhance its competitiveness. The ACF would bring together leadership of multinational financial investors and project developers, relevant companies and entrepreneurs based in Azerbaijan to discuss Azerbaijan’s competitiveness. The ACF seeks to identify ways in which the U.S. private sector can collaborate with the Government of Azerbaijan and Azerbaijan’s private sector to build growth engines for an expanding Azerbaijan economy:
1. How can Azerbaijan improve its attractiveness as a destination for foreign investment and continue to lead the South Caucasus region as a whole?
2. What additional reforms can be made in the business environment to make Azerbaijan more competitive?
3. How can foreign investors collaborate to pursue these objectives?
This will be an off-the-record meeting.
