Customs and transportation policy of the Azerbaijan Republic is aimed to development of international co-operation in the area of Customs and transportation business. Customs business in the Azerbaijan Republic develops in harmony and unification with generally accepted world practice and standards.
In the interests of development and strengthening of international economic integration, Azerbaijan Republic forms customs unions with other countries, establishes free economic zones, and concludes agreements on customs business in accordance with norms of international legislation.
President Ilham Aliyev signed a decree on March 17, 2016, on measures to create a free trade zone type special economic area covering the territory of the Baku International Sea Trade Port in the Alat township of Baku city. The free trade zone is expected to bring up to $1 billion just in the first few years. Special tax and customs policy, which will be pursued in the territory of the free trade zone will also stipulate further development and simplification of a number of procedures.
