Economic cooperation

In November 1998, delegates of the two countries met and agreed to improve and expand their economic relations and the Swiss Government agreed to give a $US 50 million credit to Azerbaijan.[1]

Switzerland considers Azerbaijan an important country for economic development cooperation according to the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs[2] The Azeri president has stressed the importance of the ties between the two nations.[3] An intergovernmental agreement on trade and economic cooperation was signed in Baku in October 2000.[4]

The Swiss Foreign Affairs minister visited the Azeri President in February 2006, where the two stressed the importance of their relationship.[5] During this visit, the focus was primarily on economic cooperation, however, the minister raised the issue of Azerbaijan's conflict with Armenia[6] This was followed by a visit by the Swiss Energy Minister in October 2007, after which an energy agreement was signed.[7]

Further emphasis was placed on the relationship and further development made in a visit by the Swiss foreign affairs minister to Baku in May 2009,[8] where his Azeri counterpart said his country placed "great importance to boosting cooperation with Switzerland" and expressed hopes of deepening the existing bilateral ties.[9]
