Kenul Nurullayeva, executive director of Baku 2020, spoke out to the Azerbaijan press to announce the imminent new logo launch for the campaign.

So far Tokyo 2020 is the first bid to launch an official logo and identity and Baku will be right behind them.

This 97-page book to be published in 80 copies will provide full information on Azerbaijan and cover all areas of country’s activities. Until 15 February, the book should be presented to the International Olympic Committee, and the latter will consider for two months the bid books of the candidate countries to host the Olympics in 2020 and announce the countries to pass the second stage of the competition."

"We have significant advantages in comparison with other countries. In particular, our economic situation of the city of Baku, climatic conditions and the proposed terms of the Olympics allows us to talk about the big chance for getting the right for hosting the Olympic Games in 2020 in Baku. In the bid book we give a forecast on all indicators, including the climate ones for the period until 2020,” she concluded.

This makes Baku’s second consecutive bid after 2016 and in this round of campaigning it is up against Doha, Istanbul, Madrid, Rome and Tokyo. The final decision will be taken in 2013 at the IOC session in Buenos Aires, Argentina in September.
