Speaking at the Turkish Countries Agribusiness Forum, Azerbaijan’s Minister of Agriculture Inam Karimov noted that the agricultural companies participating in the forum should make the most of the opportunity to hold bilateral meetings: “We are interested in achieving a sustainable transformation of our agri-food system against the background of diversification of the country’s economy. The main goals in the context of creating sustainable agriculture are green energy, digitalization and a more favorable business environment.Today, in the lands liberated from occupation, new smart villages are being created.The priority is to develop climate-smart community agriculture in these areas.With this in mind, all Participants are invited to cooperate in transferring the best technologies and experience to develop the agricultural food system for the liberated lands.

It was noted that by creating a favorable investment climate, the Azerbaijani government seeks to ensure the greatest attractiveness of the agricultural sector to foreign investors: “There are serious mechanisms of state support for agriculture, loans are allocated for the development of this sector. At the same time, the production process of agricultural products is exempted from all kinds of tax payments. Foreign agricultural companies operating in the Azerbaijani market can benefit from these advantages. Thanks to the East, West, North and South projects, Azerbaijan has become one of the reliable transportation and logistics centers in Eurasia. Foreign investors and businessmen have the opportunity to benefit from these important logistics projects.”

Then, within the framework of the Agribusiness Forum of Turkish Countries, bilateral meetings of company representatives were held.

There was discussion about possibilities for cooperation in research and development, agricultural education, technology transfer, and plant and animal health.
