Decree from the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
Ilham Aliyev

Decree from the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan stating that an international conference is to take place in Baku, entitled “Oil and Gas Potential in Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan: Energy, Economy, Ecology. Partnership Strategy”

The Azerbaijan Republic and Turkmenistan have come a long way since gaining their independence and they have achieved success in various spheres to become the fastest developing countries in the region and globally. The long-standing, fraternal relations between the two peoples have been preserved and are growing ever stronger.

The official visit of the President of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow, to Azerbaijan on 19-20 May 2008 boosted bilateral relations, raising them to a new level.

Our countries are interested in expanding economic relations and promoting cooperation between the two states. They have proved that they deserve a respectable place in the global production of oil and gas. It is therefore appropriate that Azerbaijan, together with Turkmenistan, will hold a conference which will discuss large-scale international projects that will raise investments in the oil, gas and energy sectors in the Caspian region, promote the use of cutting-edge technologies, encourage coordinated activities in the field of science and ecology and explore in detail the potential for cooperation, and announcing this to the whole world.

Taking into account the significance of strengthening bilateral cooperation between the Azerbaijan Republic and Turkmenistan, securing more efficient use of energy resources in both countries and implementing regional and international projects in this field for mutual benefit, I resolve:

  • to hold an international conference in Baku, entitled, “Oil and Gas Potential in Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan: Energy, Economy, Ecology. Partnership Strategy.” in September 2008.


  • to set up an Organising Committee (see below) to oversee preparations for the Conference (see item 1):
