A research project on “Capacity Building Support to the Ministry of Economic to Develop a Competitive Non-oil Sector in Azerbaijan No. 00046970) was inititated under the agreement. According to the agreement, the project implementation period was from 01.10.2005 until 31.03.2007.


During the mentioned period, the studies on the following 8 topics (non-oil sector development, as well as increasing the employment rate in this sector and improvement of competitive environment) were conducted by the Institute.

 

1.     “Challenges in improving competitiveness of the transport-trade-transit sector”;

However, due to certain changes occured in 2007, the project faced challenges in the implementation. Therefore, due to the implementation failure, the project implementation period was further extended for a reasonable time period. Consequently, the final stage of the project was implemented and completed in 2009-2010.

 

During the last period, the research studies were carried out in 4 themes listed below and policy proposals were developed and put forward:
