By Leman Zeynalova – Trend:

There is tremendous interest in Azerbaijan’s energy sphere, Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne told Trend.

“The more British firms have successful engagements with the Azerbaijani market, the more word spreads and others want to get involved!

“There are 300-400 UK energy firms in Azerbaijan which shows the level of interest in Azerbaijan’s energy sphere. These companies create thousands of jobs for Azerbaijan citizens, generate billions of manats in tax revenues and help bring new skills and knowledge to Azerbaijan’s work force.

“The British Embassy receives a regular stream of enquires from UK firms about energy projects in Azerbaijan. These companies are not seeking to compete directly with local companies; instead they offer specialist expertise, skills and products that can enable Azerbaijan to develop its projects faster, safer and in a way that offers the best value for money,” she said.
