The Republic of Artsakh, or Nagorno-Karabakh, is a state with limited recognition in the South Caucausus, created in 1991 on the territory of Azerbaidjan. Artsakh is a presidential republic, with the president as head of state. Local currency is the Dram, the official language is Armenian. The Republic of Artsakh, similarly to other states with limited recognition, is not recognised by UN-member-states. It is de facto recognised by Armenia and 3 non-UN-member-states.
Artsakh was economically destroyed by the Nagorno-Karabakh War between 1991 and 1994. Nowadays the country's economy is subsidised by Armenia, and some economic growth is visible. The economical sectors gradually emerging include metallurgy, mining and tourism. As Artsakh shares a border with Armenia, a total economic blockade by Azerbaidjan remains impossible.
Artsakh has a romanic-germanic legal system, with a few visible elements of socialistic law.
Corporate practice is regulated in the Law on limited liability companies, the law on joint-stock companies and other legal statutes.
Main types of businesses:
- Joint-stock company
