EU Advising Azerbaijan On Tax Administration

25 September 2014


Details of a twinning project between the European Union and tax officials in Azerbaijan have been unveiled at a presentation in Baku.

The project, called 'Support to the Ministry of Taxes of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Human Resource Development,' will see tax officials from France and Spain advise their counterparts in Azerbaijan over a two-year period.

The EU's ambassador in Azerbaijan, Malena Mard, said that the project will cost about EUR1m (USD1.28m). She described the professional development of tax staff as the first step towards the modernization of the service.

Mard was joined by Minister of Taxes, Fazil Mammadov, and his Deputy, Sahib Alakbarov. They explained that the Ministry intends to introduce a long-term strategy for human resource development within the tax agency, along with a new regulatory framework.

Earlier this month, it was announced that tax officials were studying EU indirect tax directives to facilitate Azerbaijan's economic integration with Europe.
