Azerbaijan hired McKinsey & Company, a worldwide management consulting firm, to develop a road map for the country’s economy to 2025 and beyond.
“We were expecting to enter the post-oil era in about 10-15 years, but we have practically found ourselves in that situation already today”, Natiq Amirov, Azerbaijani presidential aide on economic reforms, said.
He noted that revenues from customs had increased by 30% YoY in the first six months of 2016.
The government has also drastically reduced the number of inspections of companies by government agencies, Natiq Amirov said. (Trend/Business World Magazine)
