As a guided by our Strategy, we pay special attention to the international projects that contribute to the favorable investment climate of the country. In 2012 our Bank in partnership with the Economist Group organized an international forum “Buttonwood Breakfast: Global Economics”. The main target of the event was to discuss the prospects of the development of the global economy, the potentials of a number of economic scenarios and their possible impact. The event got together experts, investors, and leaders of international companies, such as BP, Chevron, Societe Generale, CommerzBank, Ernst & Young. Experts participating in the event in Baku could share their views on the economic situation in post-crisis Eurozone, Asia and USA; potential impact of various economic scenarios, new challenges in the global economics – as well as the potential of investing into the economy of Azerbaijan as an emerging market that was not affected by the financial crises very much.
