Tourism Investors in Azerbaijan to Have Privileges
Azerbaijan, Baku / Тrend corr I. Alizadeh / MP Hady Rajabli, the chairman of the permanent parliamentary commission on social policy, stated that the passing of the Law on Resorts and Sanatoriums will positively affect the development of tourism in Azerbaijan.
"Developing its tourism, Azerbaijan can find a new way to the world," Rajabli said.
Currently three organizations deal with tourism, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Ministry of Health and the Confederation of Trade Unions. "The Law will reflect the management of relations of state organizations engaged in tourism, cooperation with executive bodies and rules of utilization of natural resources," he said.
According to the MP, Azerbaijani citizens mainly go abroad for recreation. "Providing there are comfortable recreation conditions in Azerbaijan, the public will be able to rest in the country. We have such places in Azerbaijan, but we have to build more as well," Rajabli clarified. The chairman expressed his discontent with the prices in the recreation area of 'Nabran', which are much higher than in Turkish Antalia.
"Arrangements on development of tourism in Gabala, Lankaran, and other regions are in progress. Businessmen interested in investing in tourism should be provided with some privileges," the MP added.
