Murad is now working at the State Oil Fund (SOFAZ) in the Budget, Planning and Projects department. His department has been heavily involved in the work dedicated to improving fiscal policies of Azerbaijan and ensure sound budgetary spending. Earlier, Murad was working at AZPROMO where he helped to build export and investment promotion strategies.
His Action Plan aims to improve the quality of fiscal understanding and decision-making at the Oil Fund of Azerbaijan (SOFAZ), in part by setting up a fiscal policy think-tank which will provide high-quality, independent insight for policy-makers and other interested stakeholders. In time, the ambition is for this think-tank to widen its remit to other sectors and issues.
