On May 1, 2014, stakeholders gathered for the “Development of Entrepreneurship in Azerbaijan” conference at the Baku Hilton.

Participants discussed recommendations for improving Azerbaijan’s entrepreneurial environment in eight key areas: electronic registration of business entities; construction permits; connection to the electric power network; state registration of property rights; the provision of loans; corporate governance; import-export operations; and bankruptcy. Conference participants recommended reducing the number of procedures, amount of time, and cost for the eight areas mentioned above.

Participants developed these suggestions to support the March 3, 2014 Azerbaijani Presidential Decree on Additional Measures for Entrepreneurship Development. The implementation of these measures will improve the operating environment for Azerbaijani business owners, permit entrepreneurship to flourish, and raise Azerbaijan’s rankings in relevant international indices (including the World Bank's "Doing Business” report).
