ataz – die Österreichisch-Aserbaidschanische Handelskammer – ist Drehscheibe für wirtschaftlichen, interkulturellen und humanitären Austausch zwischen Österreich und Aserbaidschan. Ziel ist es, die Wirtschaftsbeziehungen zwischen den Ländern zu stärken und Unternehmen bei ihren Tätigkeiten in beiden Märkten zu unterstützen.
Dabei sieht sich ataz als Brückenbauer zwischen zwei Ländern und Regionen, die beide eine ähnliche, strategisch wichtige geopolitische Bedeutung haben. Während Österreich seit jeher das Tor nach Zentral- und Osteuropa ist, hat sich Aserbaidschan in den letzten Jahren zum wichtigen Sprungbrett nach Zentralasien entwickelt.
