Baku, Azerbaijan, November 1
The plants for cotton processing, production of cottonseed oil and fiberless cotton seeds will be opened in Ujar region of Azerbaijan, says the article of the Minister of Agriculture Inam Karimov, published in the official press.
The article says that the measures taken in the cotton industry will increase crop yields and return traditional glory to this sphere.
"The opening of the plants will make an important contribution to the development of this sphere, and will allow for satisfying the need for fiberless cotton seeds by means of local production," Karimov said.
The minister noted that the current stage of agrarian reforms can be characterized as a turning point in terms of the development of traditional spheres.
"The measures for development of such spheres as cotton growing, tobacco growing, rice growing, cocoon production, tea growing, viticulture and citrus production have been carried out consistently and systematically in the framework of the adopted State programs. As a result, by ensuring a high level of added value and creating additional jobs in rural areas, it was possible to achieve positive dynamics in the development of export-oriented industrial-purpose sectors," the minister said.
