Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I am a representative of a U.S. business and want to know more about Azerbaijan. How can I do that?
Q: You said help with arranging meetings has a fee. My company received help from Embassy for free. Why should I pay now?
A: U.S. Embassy Baku has a Memorandum of Cooperation with the Department of Commerce that enables the Embassy to offer services typically only available from the Foreign Commercial Service. These services have a fee and for the sake of maintaining a level playing field cannot be offered for free. Other U.S. Embassies that do not have a Memorandum of Cooperation with Department of Commerce may offer help to U.S. companies as a courtesy but do not have the ability to offer the full range of services available at U.S. Embassy Baku.
Q: I am a representative of an Azerbaijani company interested in selling U.S. made goods or services in Azerbaijan. Can you help me find a U.S. company that might be interested in working with me?
A: Absolutely. Please contact us to set up a meeting and we will happily work with a network of Export Assistance Centers in the U.S. to put you in touch with companies that might meet your needs.
Q: I am a representative of an Azerbaijani company and would like to sell my products in the United States. How can you help me?
A: We would be happy to put you in touch with our colleagues at AZPROMO whose mandate is to promote exports of Azerbaijani goods and services abroad. Or feel free to contact AZPROMO directly for additional assistance. We can also help you contact the U.S./Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce and the American Chamber of Commerce in Baku for additional assistance.
Q: I am a representative of a U.S. business that is already successfully operating in Azerbaijan. But I want help to expand into other markets in the region. Can you help me?
A: We will happily link you with our contacts in the Foreign Commercial Service or at other U.S. Embassies throughout the region. We work with a network of colleagues who can assist you.
