This macroeconomic situation shows that there can be no question of inflation in Azerbaijan. There is not a serious argument for this. We are also following our main trade partners. Changes in their currencies can create a volatility 0.2-0.3 percent. However, this is not serious. Exchange rate of manat is stable. WE meet al demands of banks. Sufficient cash have been brought to the country. We are ready to meet any demand for cash. General economy is stable. Stability of national currency is based on strong macro economy’, he said.
