President Aliyev: In difficult days state will always be near entrepreneurs
Baku, Azerbaijan, March 29
In difficult days, if an accident has occurred, the state will always stand by entrepreneurs, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said.
He was speaking March 28 at the meeting over a fire that occurred in a shopping center "Diglas" in Nizami district, Baku.
“As for entrepreneurs, I want to say again that the state will stand by them,” Ilham Aliyev added. “They have already been informed about this. We should promptly organize the provision of financial support. A relevant instruction has been issued. In addition, as already noted here, they should be provided with soft loans. It is necessary to precisely calculate the amount of damage caused. We should take measures to place them in other shopping centers operating today, so that they do not stay without work.”
“Thus, I believe that as a result of the measures already taken and to be taken in the future, entrepreneurs will once again be convinced that the state always supports them,” he said. “The development of entrepreneurship in Azerbaijan has gained momentum, and the further long-term and sustainable development of our country is largely connected with the activities of entrepreneurs. A class of entrepreneurs has now emerged in Azerbaijan. They are very active in various fields – in manufacturing, service and trade sectors. Of course, the state provides them with both political and financial support. As you know, more than 2 billion manats were provided to them on concessional terms. In difficult days, if an accident has occurred, the state will always be near them.”
