Institutional Setup

CAREC Presidency 2021 - Azerbaijan

The CAREC Program is chaired by its member countries. Every year, one country assumes the overall Presidency of the Program and leads the program activities. In 2021, the CAREC Program is chaired by Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan joined the CAREC Program in 2003 and has since been working to promote growth and connectivity transforming the region into a center of trade and commerce as global markets increasingly integrate. As of 2019, more than $5 billion have been invested in Azerbaijan through CAREC. These projects have helped improve transport, trade, energy infrastructure and policies, and have spread the benefits of better connectivity. The CAREC Presidency rotates on an annual basis and in alphabetical order. The next country chairing the program will be the People’s Republic of China through the calendar year 2022.
