Support to enhancement of operational capabilities of the Port of Baku

Project Description
The Strategic Plan of the Port of Baku for 2020 – 2022 has defined a number of concrete strategic objectives, and respective strategic goals under each objective that will facilitate sustainable growth and prepare the Port of Baku for additional future cargo flows once the free trade zone takes off. Achieving these strategic goals will help to realize the strong potential of the Port of Baku to become a reliable link along important transport routes.
