Azerbaijan regained its independence in 1991 with the dissolution of the Soviet Union. At the crossroads of the Middle East, Central Asia and Europe, Azerbaijan is a secular state with a Muslim-majority population and traditions of religious tolerance. Azerbaijan has substantial energy resources, which have led to rapid growth over the last decade, but the country still needs to make substantial progress on economic reforms.

USAID currently provides development assistance to achieve goals in two major sectors: supporting the growth of non-oil sectors of the economy; and strengthening participatory and transparent democratic and governance processes.
