On 21 May 2024, the German-Azerbaijani Chamber of Commerce (AHK Azerbaijan) organised AHK Members’ Assembly, with the participation of over 80 business representatives. AHK Members` Assembly is an event organised twice a year, gathering all AHK Members together to discuss the activities and achievements of AHK Azerbaijan over the past year.

The event was opened with a welcoming speech by Mr Anar Hasanov, Chairman of AHK Board Directors, who briefly presented the program of the meeting to the participants. The chairman highly appreciated the hard work of the chamber and its employees, noting that the active participation of the chamber members and the increase in membership is a gratifying situation.

The Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Azerbaijan, Dr Ralf Horlemann, noted that the last 15 months have been very eventful and intense for the embassy, with a number of significant events being held by the embassy. He expressed pride that Azerbaijan will host COP29 and that the President of Azerbaijan, Mr Ilham Aliyev, has made four business visits to Germany in a short period of time, highlighting that this contributes to strengthening Germany-Azerbaijan relations. He mentioned that COP29 could also encourage increased activity of Germany in Azerbaijan's business sector. Speaking about the record number of visas obtained by Azerbaijanis from Germany in the past year, which demonstrates Azerbaijan's strong orientation towards Germany, the Ambassador stated that an increase in these numbers in the coming years could significantly boost the development of bilateral relations between the two countries.

Mr Anar Hasanov, Chairman of the AHK Board, provided information about the business, online, and social events organised by AHK in the past months. He then announced the appointment of Mr Rashad Huseynli as Vice Chairman of the Energy Transition Working Group. Mr Hasanov also expressed his gratitude to AHK Azerbaijan's Working Groups for the events they organised and their hard work in recent months. He commended the active work of the Human Resources and Vocational Education & Training Working Group and informed the event guests about the newly published "AHK Human Resources Insights" journals. Mr Hasanov also shared details about the business trip of the East Business Association of the Federal Republic of Germany to Baku, co-organised by AHK Azerbaijan, scheduled for February 27-28, 2024. The trip included meetings with President Ilham Aliyev and Minister of Economy Mr Mikayil Jabbarov.

“From the last Members’ Assembly, 15 new companies have become members of AHK Azerbaijan, and now we count 181 members from Germany and Azerbaijan representing various sectors of the economy. We are proud of the fact that quality work and commitment of our Chamber attract new companies from various industries.”

After the reach of the quorum of the Members’ Assembly, the new members of AHK Azerbaijan were introduced to the auditorium and approved as members of the Chamber. The event concluded with a business dinner.
