- Deputy Prime Minister Babacan

Speaking at the B20 Azerbaijan Regional Consultative Meeting in Baku, Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan stated that every time he visits Baku, the city shows him a further renovated and modernized face, making him greatly proud, confirming his perception that Baku is on its way to being an international actor rather than just a regional one.

Stating that the diversifying Azerbaijani economy will contribute to the prosperity of not just the Azerbaijani people, but that of all the peoples of the region, Babacan said, “We have the right to invite one non-G20 country to the G20 Summit to be held in Turkey. We chose Azerbaijan because in addition to being our brother country, it is also one of the countries which progressed the most and contributed the most to the development of the Southern Caucasia and which would contribute greatly to the G20.”
