BAKU, Azerbaijan, August 12. Job creation should become an ongoing process in Azerbaijan, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said in an interview to Azerbaijani TV channel, speaking about the importance of opening the 179-room Basgal Resort & Spa in Basgal village in terms of tourism development in the region, Trend reports.
"A new modern hotel with 179 rooms was opened at the entrance of Basgal settlement today. Of course, the opening of this hotel will significantly expand the tourism potential of this region. At the same time, the creation of these facilities in Ismayilli district means the opening of hundreds of jobs. About 300 jobs are created in the hotel in Basgal alone, and those working there are also local residents.
At the same time, the operation of the large agricultural park in Aghsu district is also making an important contribution to the economy of this region. About 200 jobs have been created there.
In other words, job creation should become an ongoing process in Azerbaijan because our population is growing and the demand for jobs is increasing. As a result of the implementation of the projects I have mentioned, the state provides great support for the creation of jobs as a result of the conditions being created for the private sector," said the head of state.
