Azer­bai­jani Pres­i­dent Il­ham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva vis­ited Gakh re­gion on Oc­to­ber 28 to par­take in the open­ing of so­cially im­por­tant fa­cil­i­ties.

The coun­try’s econ­omy will ben­e­fit greatly, em­ploy­ment will in­crease, peo­ple will be pro­vided with jobs, and the coun­try will elim­i­nate de­pen­dence on im­ports as a re­sult of gov­ern­ment pro­grams, Pres­i­dent Aliyev said at the in­au­gu­ra­tion of Gakh Agropark owned by Ulu Aqro LLC.

“The cre­ation of agroparks in our coun­try is al­ready a state pro­gram, this process has gained a wide scope. It is en­vis­aged that by the end of this year, 13 agroparks will start func­tion­ing and Gakh Agropark is one of them. In gen­eral, it is planned to cre­ate 45 agroparks, where thou­sands, tens of thou­sands of peo­ple will work,” the head of state noted.

The Pres­i­dent went on to say that 13 mil­lion man­ats was in­vested in Gakh Agropark, adding that the pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ship is clearly il­lus­trated by the ex­am­ple of Gakh Agropark.

Fur­ther, the head of state touched upon the de­vel­op­ment of agri­cul­ture in the coun­try.

“In or­der to de­velop agri­cul­ture very se­ri­ous steps are be­ing taken. This is re­flected in fig­ures. In the first nine months of this year, growth in agri­cul­ture equaled to 4.3 per­cent. Planned work is car­ried out in all ar­eas of agri­cul­ture, and thus the tra­di­tional branches of agri­cul­ture are re­stored — cot­ton grow­ing, viti­cul­ture, to­bacco grow­ing, hazel­nut grow­ing, co­coon farm­ing, veg­etable grow­ing, and other spheres. We must make sure that Azer­bai­jan will meet its needs in all types of food prod­ucts. We are ap­proach­ing this goal,” Il­ham Aliyev stressed.

Pres­i­dent Aliyev said that a self­em­ploy­ment pro­gram is be­ing im­ple­mented in the coun­try, fur­ther say­ing that ev­ery year at least 6,000-7,000 peo­ple with state sup­port will build their own busi­ness and im­prove well­be­ing.

Pres­i­dent Aliyev fur­ther talked about the im­ple­men­ta­tion of so­cial projects in Gakh.

As part of their visit, the Pres­i­dent and the First Lady at­tended the in­au­gu­ra­tion of Gakh Silk­worm Breed­ing Sta­tion of the Min­istry of Agri­cul­ture af­ter re­con­struc­tion, the in­au­gu­ra­tion of Yurd Ho­tel owned by Ulu Yurd LLC, the in­au­gu­ra­tion of GakhGipchag-Aghyazi road.

More­over, Azer­bai­jani Pres­i­dent has signed or­ders on mea­sures to im­prove the liv­ing con­di­tions of the pop­u­la­tion of Gakh re­gion and on pro­vid­ing ini­tial al­lo­ca­tion for the con­struc­tion of a new school in Alibayli vil­lage in Gakh re­gion.

On Oc­to­ber 29, Azer­bai­jani Pres­i­dent Il­ham Aliyev and First Lady Mehriban Aliyeva vis­ited Shaki re­gion.

The fight against cor­rup­tion, bribery, led by Azer­bai­jan, has fully es­tab­lished it­self in the cen­ters of the ASAN Ser­vice, and this is a model and ex­am­ple for all state struc­tures, Pres­i­dent Aliyev said at the open­ing of the Shaki ASAN Hayat com­plex.

Fur­ther, the head of state touched upon the im­por­tance of the com­plex.

“I am very glad that such a won­der­ful com­plex has been cre­ated and started work­ing in the city of Shaki. Jobs have been cre­ated here for Shaki youth. You have been of­fered 190 jobs. I am glad that the over­whelm­ing ma­jor­ity of those work­ing here are young peo­ple, in­clud­ing girls. At the same time, as I was in­formed, 50 vol­un­teers will work in the com­plex. Thus, 240 peo­ple will pro­vide ser­vices of the high­est level to cit­i­zens. Be­cause ASAN Hayat com­plexes, ASAN Ser­vice cen­ters are the struc­tures that pro­vide pub­lic ser­vices at the high­est level on a global scale. It is no co­in­ci­dence that sev­eral years ago, the UN awarded ASAN Ser­vice a spe­cial award for pub­lic ser­vices. As you know, this prac­tice is be­ing stud­ied in sev­eral coun­tries, and the rel­e­vant doc­u­ments on ASAN Ser­vice have been signed with sev­eral coun­tries,” Pres­i­dent Aliyev noted.

The head of state un­der­lined that re­cently, ASAN ex­panded the scope of ac­tiv­i­ties.

“I have re­peat­edly said that the ar­eas that to­day do not re­ceive the ap­proval of cit­i­zens and raise con­cerns, ASAN Ser­vice ap­proach must be in­tro­duced. It is no co­in­ci­dence that the num­ber of ser­vices pro­vided in the cen­ters is grad­u­ally in­creas­ing. Here in this cen­ter 320 ser­vices are ren­dered. In the first cen­ters of ASAN Ser­vice we reached 100, af­ter­wards 200 ser­vices. Now the num­ber of ser­vices is grow­ing and will grad­u­ally in­crease,” Il­ham Aliyev em­pha­sized.

Fur­ther, the head of state pointed out that ASAN Ser­vice de­vel­ops a very im­por­tant sphere of the coun­try - the sphere of self-em­ploy­ment.

“ABAD cen­ters play a spe­cial role in the ef­fi­cient op­er­a­tion of fam­ily farms. That is, th­ese cen­ters, one may say, cover most of the tasks fac­ing the coun­try and show an ex­am­ple, a way, an ap­proach,” the Pres­i­dent said.

Pres­i­dent Aliyev pointed to the fact that to­day, Shaki is turn­ing into an in­ter­na­tional tourism cen­ter.

Il­ham Aliyev and Mehriban Aliyeva also at­tended the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the newly built Hey­dar Aliyev Cen­ter, the open­ing of the Flag Mu­seum, the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the Shak­iKish high­way, the open­ing of ABAD Cen­ter of Ce­ram­ics and Ap­plied Arts, the in­au­gu­ra­tion of a new build­ing of the mixed type or­phan­age, con­structed at the ini­tia­tive of the Hey­dar Aliyev Foun­da­tion.

The head of state signed an or­der on mea­sures to im­prove hous­ing and liv­ing con­di­tions of the pop­u­la­tion of Shaki.
