The Association of Women Entrepreneurs of Azerbaijan plans to expand the cooperation with similar organizations in various states in the territory of the former Soviet Union, Chairwoman of the Association's Board Sakina Babayeva told Trend.
The Association of Women Entrepreneurs of Azerbaijan was established in October 2017. Babayeva noted that for a short period of work, the Association has concluded memorandums of cooperation with the associations of women entrepreneurs of Georgia, Latvia and Astrakhan, and is interested in expanding this list.
"We plan to conclude cooperation agreements with associations of women entrepreneurs of Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus in the future. Our organization maintains contacts with foreign associations to learn from each other's experience and share it. We are opening our offices in these countries, and Azerbaijani business ladies are actively involved in this activity. At the same time, our women make speeches at international venues, where discussions on the development of women entrepreneurship take place. For example, on May 30, the fifth women's forum was held in Azerbaijan, which was attended by about a 1,000 entrepreneurs, 200 of whom were women entrepreneurs. This suggests that women entrepreneurship in Azerbaijan is seriously aimed at institutional development," Babayeva said.
