The United States – Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce (USACC) is a lobbying group aiming to develop long-term business ties between the firms in the United States and Azerbaijan and attract US investment to Azerbaijan Republic.

This business is mainly oil and gas, and the US regards Azerbaijan and the access to the Caspian Sea basin petroleum resources as an immense strategic prize.

The members are many of the heavy hitters in the US deep state, giving it big political clout.

USACC has been the driving force behind one of the world's longest oil pipelines, Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (branching off Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum) gas pipeline, operational today.
