As a result of the policy pursued by the State Head of Azerbaijan, lenient credits are being given for the development of the agrarian sector and serious steps are taken to improve the agrarian services. Undoubtedly, in the future, we will see the definite results of the steps for the future development of the agrarian sector, Samadzade stated.

Due to this, the opportunities for the transport-commercial relations have also increased, he said, adding that the growth rate of the non-oil sector in Azerbaijan is increasing each year.

The State Head instructed the Ministry of Industry & Energy to prepare an industrial development program. Large-scale industrial projects are realized in Azerbaijan, Samadzade stated.
