ataz – the Austrian Azerbaijani Chamber of Commerce – is a platform for economic, intercultural and humanitarian exchange between Austria and Azerbaijan. The purpose of the association is to strengthen the economic relationship between the two countries and to support companies in their business activities in both markets.
In doing so, ataz sees itself as a bridge-builder between two counties and regions playing a similarly important role in strategic and geopolitical terms. Austria has been the gateway to the CEE region for many years and Azerbaijan has recently become an important springboard to Central Asia.
