Azerbaijan, republic in Central Asia, west of the Caspian Sea. Azerbaijan has a share in the Greater and Lesser Caucasus and includes the Apsheron peninsula. The heavily irrigated arable land allows the cultivation of cotton, grain, tobacco, wine and citrus fruits. In addition to cattle breeding, traditional silkworm breeding plays an important role. The most important branch of the economy, however, is the oil industry with the production area around Baku. Most of the population are Azerbaijanis, who are closely related to the Turks; they are mostly Muslim.
History: The area of today’s Azerbaijan was conquered and Islamized by the Arabs in 643. Disputed between the Ottoman Empire and Persia in the 16th century, it fell to Persia in 1603. In 1828 northern Azerbaijan came to Russia. In 1918 an independent Azerbaijani Republic was established, which was occupied by the Red Army in 1920 and became part of the Transcaucasian Soviet Republic in 1922. In 1936 Azerbaijan became an independent union republic of the Soviet Union.
When, in 1988, the predominantly Armenian region of Nagorno-Karabakh demanded annexation to Armenia, military conflicts broke out, which were resolved by a ceasefire in 1994. In 1991 Azerbaijan declared its independence. In the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, the ceasefire has remained fragile to this day.

The manufacturing sector generates around 46% of GDP, of which, however, 12.1% is accounted for by the construction industry and only 5.3% by the manufacturing industry. A large part of the industry is concentrated on the Apscheron peninsula with the Baku – Sumgait agglomeration, where oil production and processing as well as petrochemicals and plant construction (for oil production) are decisive. Further industrial sectors are iron and non-ferrous metallurgy, aluminum production, metal processing, chemical, textile (including traditional silk and carpet weaving) and the food industry.
The country’s tourist potential is very diverse, and the tourist infrastructure is still problematic. The majority of foreign visitors (2015: 2.0 million) come from other CIS countries. Places of interest in tourism in the Greater Caucasus are the over 2000 year old city of Sheki as well as Kussary, Sakataly and Tschuchurjurd as climatic health resorts, winter sports resorts in the mountains, in the mineral spring rich Lesser Caucasus Shusha, Istissu and Naftalan as well as on the Caspian Sea Lenkoran and Masally. The walled part of Baku’s old town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The transport network comprises around 2,100 km of railway lines and 52,900 km of roads, a large part of which is in need of modernization. The most important traffic axes lead from Baku via Gäncä to Tbilisi and Batumi (Transcaucasian Railway) and from Baku via Makhachkala to central Russia. There is also a rail link along the Arax River to Nakhchivan. The port of Baku, from which there are rail ferry connections to Turkmenbashi (Turkmenistan) and Aktau (Kazakhstan), is of the greatest importance for cargo handling. Shipping also connects Baku with Bender Ansali in Iran. The international airport is located not far from Baku.
Electricity generation has increased steadily since 2003 (2015: 24.7 billion kWh) and over 93% is done by thermal power plants based on heating oil and natural gas, which are mainly located on the Apscheron peninsula (Sumgait), but also in Gäncä and are located in Şirvan. Due to the increased natural gas production, Azerbaijan has been independent of gas imports since 2007. New power plants are mainly operated with gas. There are hydropower plants among others. on the Kura (near Mingetschaur and Warwarinsk), on the Terek, Tärtär and Arax (here the operation takes place together with Iran).
