Chairman of Parliamentary Commission Urges Concessions for Businessmen Investing Development of Azerbaijani Tourism
Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr I. Alizadeh / Adoption of the law on resorts and sanatoriums will positively affect the development of tourism in Azerbaijan, the Chairman of the Azerbaijani Permanent Parliamentary Commission on Social Policy, MP Hady Rajabli, said.
Rajabli noted that his commission was working on the aforementioned draft law in management of relationships and cooperation with local organizations of state bodies engaged in tourism - the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Ministry of Health, and the Confederation of Trade Unions.
"Today Azerbaijani citizens go abroad to rest. This necessity will be eliminated if comfortable conditions for rest are established in Azerbaijan. We have several tourism facilities in Azerbaijan, but they cannot be considered enough," Rajabli said.
The Chairman voiced his discontent that the prices of one of Azerbaijan's leisure destinations, Nabran, are higher than in Antalia, in Turkey. According to Rajabli, this discrepancy should be removed.
"Efforts are made today to develop tourism in Gabala, Lankaran, and other regions of the country. Tourism is a priority field and businessmen investing in tourism should have concessions," he urged.
