About the German - Azerbaijani Chamber of Commerce

The German Chambers of Commerce, the AHKs, offer their experience, connections and services to the German and foreign companies worldwide. The AHKs are located in all countries of particular interest for the German industry and commerce.  In Germany, the AHKs are closely connected with the network of the German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (IHKs). Together, the IHKs and AHKs support German companies to establish and to expand their economic relations with foreign countries. The Umbrella organization of the IHKs is the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), which also coordinates AHK networks.  AHKs have a very close and strong cooperation with German trade associations which further strengthens the good and wide network that AHKs have. AHKs are proportionally funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy based on the decision taken by the German Federal Parliament.

The AHK Azerbaijan was officially opened in Baku, on 12th  November 2012, by the Minister of State Pieper (Foreign Affairs), the Vice Minister Safarov (Ministry of Economic Development), Dr. Brown (BMWi) and Dr. Treier (DIHK). Over 250 decision-makers from the political and economical sphere of both Azerbaijan and Germany attended the ceremony.

AHK Azerbaijan’s foundation comes from the German-Azerbaijan Business Association (DAWF), which has been active in Azerbaijan since 1999 and had closely worked for several years with BMWi, DIHK and CIM before the foundation of the Chamber.

The creation of the German - Azerbaijani Chamber of Commerce was sealed on March 14th, 2012 by the Federal Foreign Minister, Guido Westerwelle and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Elmar Mammadyarov.
