ADB Approves $400 Million to Support Azerbaijan's Rail Sector, Modernize North-South Railway Corridor
ADB's Board of Directors has approved two loans totaling $400 million to help strengthen Azerbaijan’s railway sector and modernize and rehabilitate the Sumgayit–Yalama rail line, a key link in the North–South Railway Corridor.
Azerbaijan’s gross national income per capita has increased approximately tenfold in a decade and a half. This robust growth has been largely driven by the extraction and processing of fossil fuels, along with high levels of public expenditure.
The ADB country partnership strategy, 2014–2018 for Azerbaijan aims to diversify the economy, foster new economic opportunities, promote inclusive growth, and reduce disparities between urban and rural areas.
Azerbaijan is a member of the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) Program.
