Azerbaijan is a country in the heart of the Central Eurasia. The country lays between the maritime coast of the Caspian Sea and the high Caucasus mountains. It enjoys the abundance of rich culture, history and hospitability. Azerbaijan is a rich destination with natural resources, ranging from oil and gas to various precious metals as well as a favorable tourism potential, with all-season tourism possibilities including thermal springs allowing the development of thermal and wellness resorts.
The country is also very sensitive to environmental issues. See an example of Azerbaijani very active association for the promotion of biodiversity, green spaces, oceans and seas: IDEA (International Dialogue for Environmental Action).
Azerbaijan is a politically and economically stable country on the crossroads of North-South and East-West transit corridors, largely contributing to the energy security of Europe. Being an active party of global infrastructure projects, Azerbaijan is not dependent on any external power thanks to the development of independent infrastructure with its own financial resources.
Being a key player in the Caucasus region, Azerbaijan does not only develop local connectivity and infrastructure, but creates new alternatives and possibilities for the entire region. Alat Free Economic Zone (AFEZ), located by the Caspian Sea and close to the capital city Baku, is ideal for an investor who would like to use the possibilities of an open hub to distribute their products and services with the existing high-quality infrastructure to customers in Russia to the North, Turkey and Georgia to the West, Iran to the South with outlets to the Middle East, and the countries of Central Asia to the East, with outlets to China and further.
