The president also noted that a foundation of cigarette factory was also laid today: ‘This factory is also of great importance. We are not dependent on cigarette import. Of course, we all want the cigarette consumption in Azerbaijan to be reduced. However, this has not been achieved yet. Domestic production must replace foreign production. The production of this factory will meet 50 percent of the domestic need. I’m sure that we’ll meet 100 percent of our demand and export cigarette in the future’.
The head of state also said that construction of pesticide factory has already been solved: ‘This is also a very important issue. Because we are dependent on import in this field too. Now, this plant will meet the domestic need and be able to export products. This will contribute to rural development. As a result of reasonable agro technical measures, we can increase the productivity significantly’.
