  • Free Trade Zone related functions of the PoB strengthened and the commercial aspects related to international cross-border trade facilitated relative to new logistic opportunities such as the rail network;
  • National legislative and regulative framework applicable to Port and Free Trade Zone revised and recommendations submitted according to the best international practices;
  • Port and Free Trade Zone related ICT systems upgraded and relevant statistics developed;
  • Human Resources Management (HRM) system improved and public awareness initiatives implemented.
Ecorys and Royal HaskoningDHV can build on their broad experience in the Caucasus, including Azerbaijan, to support the PoB. The project will start on January 16, 2018, and has a duration of two years.
