The goal of this Activity is to utilize a partnership and co-investment approach to support a more resilient Azerbaijan economy, beyond the oil sector, by improving the competitiveness of the private sector with a special focus onagriculture and reducing the administrative barriers that hinder the development of micro, small, and medium enterprises in Azerbaijan. Modernization and improvement of the public sectors in order to support the diversification of Azerbaijan's economy requires a strong set of public institutions with clarity of roles and responsibilities.

It is also crucial to have a private sector that is capable of and poised to respond to improvements in the business enabling environment. As such, the objectives of this activity are:
1.More diversified non-oil economy through initiatives that assist small and medium sized agribusinesses and farmers to grow;
2.Improved business environment for micro, small and medium businesses; and
3.Support for Azerbaijan's economic reforms
