Ernst & Young has made a major commitment to Azerbaijan and the region with the opening of our office in Baku 16 years ago and the growth of our local financial service industry group. Today, in addition to being a leading audit firm in Azerbaijan, we are the leading firm in the region. Because of our experience and depth of knowledge, we have been able to assist both domestic and international companies as well as state-owned entities in developing them to face the challenges of the international economy.
We currently have around 120 staff in our Baku practice, which served our clients, including banks and other financial institutions, in Azerbaijan. The strength of Ernst & Young in the Caspian Region and the firm's commitment of resources are important to the entities operating in the region.
