The relationship between India and independent Azerbaijan has now endured well over a decade. The silk route connection between India and Azerbaijan is very significant since early times, when Indian merchants used to pass through Azerbaijan while traveling towards Europe. Due to Azerbaijan’s central location in the Silk Route, Azerbaijan emerged as the largest trade centre on the long stretch of the Silk Route. In this book, mutual interest, challenges and opportunities for diversifying cooperation in various sectors have been discussed. This book reflects the changing dynamics of the situation in both the countries and their mutual needs and requirements to improve the bilateral relationship.
