Cotton export brought $29M to Azerbaijan in 2015, MP says

The cotton export brought $29 million to Azerbaijan in 2015

Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 29 By Azad Hasanli – The cotton export brought $29 million to Azerbaijan in 2015, Chairman of the country’s Parliamentary Committee on Agrarian Policy Eldar Ibrahimov told reporters in Baku Oct. 28. “In 2015, export of agricultural products amounted to approximately 47 percent (about $700 million) of all the non-oil export,” the MP said. “Only at the expense of cotton, we earned $29 million. This is very important, because if we give up the oil economy, agriculture should become one of the most important spheres of the non-oil sector.” He noted that agriculture should be actively developed. “Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev pays special attention to this issue,” Ibrahimov said. “Loans are allocated in the country and grants are provided for the development of the agricultural sector.” The MP went on to add that Azerbaijan will be able to meet the needs of the entire population in the agricultural products in the future. “The land plots of nearly 200,000 hectares are currently not used, and our goal is to use them,” Ibrahimov said.
