President Ilham Aliyev: Creation of 33 agro-parks will increase country’s export potential

Baku, July 13, AZERTAC

“Creation of new agro-parks successfully continues and the process extends day by day. Naturally, during the year, as always, attention will be paid to infrastructure projects and their implementation. These projects should be carried out in parallel with the development of agriculture, so that they serve the population, as well as the development of agriculture”, President Ilham Aliyev stated at the meeting of Cabinet of Ministers on results of socio-economic development in first half of 2017 and future objectives.

The Head of State further said: “This year, at the same time, I should note that, in accordance with our policy, a process has been taking place in recent years whereby 32 large-scale farms have been created in Azerbaijan. The area under cultivation in these farms is 44,000 hectares. A total of 33 agro-parks are being established on 142,000 hectares in 24 districts. The funds spent on the establishment of agro-park data are 1 billion manats. These 33 agro-parks and the 32 large farms created before this will have a very big impact on increasing the yields, meeting the domestic demand and increasing the export potential, especially if we consider that these agricultural parks and farms are built on the basis of modern technology”.
