Azerbaijan: Country Partnership Strategy (2019-2023)

Institutional Document | May 2019

This Country Partnership Strategy defines ADB's strategic approach in Azerbaijan for 2019–2023.

The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2019–2023 for Azerbaijan will help address Azerbaijan’s binding development constraints. First, to help reduce the country’s dependency on oil exports and improve economic resilience, the CPS will support non-oil private sector development and improve access to finance. Second, to help rationalize the state’s role in the economy, ADB will support raising efficiency of the public sector by promoting more sustainable government expenditure and public corporate sector. Third, ADB will support infrastructure improvements and human capital strengthening to support the needs of a diversified economy.

Under the CPS, ADB will also help accelerate progress in gender equality, tackle climate change and enhance environmental sustainability, strengthen governance and institutional capacity, and foster regional cooperation and integration.

The CPS is based on Azerbaijan’s upper middle-income country status, in line with the differentiated approaches to groups of countries under ADB’s Strategy 2030.
