President Ilham Aliyev: We need to provide ourselves with main agricultural products by 100 per cent

Baku, July 14 (AZERTAC). “The electronic agricultural system, the purchase of new equipment and pedigree cattle – all of this is intended to make life easier for farmers and provide them with an additional source of income,” said President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers.

“Of course, this is one side of the issue, a social issue, because about half of our population is engaged in agriculture and lives in rural areas. We view this issue as a social one. At the same time, it is an issue which has great economic potential. We are not using it fully now. Every year we address this issue while discussing the regional development program. Following this, we must also ensure the supply of agricultural products to world markets,” said the President.
