Based on the document, the average annual growth of foreign investments will hit 41.5 percent in 2012, 30.4 percent in 2013, 15.4 percent in 2014 and 8.4 percent in 2015.

Azerbaijan continues to attract significant funds in various spheres of the economy. Funding for projects will increase in 2012 due to foreign credits.

The priority areas are concentrated in the oil sector. There were signed credit agreements on funding for the transport sector improvement, major construction projects and project on development of high technology, innovative types of production.

The volume of domestic investments directed to the different sectors of the economy in 2011-2015 will also grow, but the growth will be significantly lower compared to the growth of the foreign investment inflow.

As a result, the average annual growth of domestic investments is expected to decrease from 22 percent to 0.3 percent in 2012.

However, despite the decline in growth rates in nominal terms, the domestic investment exceeds the volume of foreign investment. In 2012, domestic investment would amount to 9.479.2 billion manat, in 2013 - 9.902.2 billion manat, in 2014 - 10.586.7 billion manat and in 2015 - 10.8722 billion manat.

Today, the state investments exceed private investment in the structure of domestic investment.

The dominance of investments in the non-oil sector will continue in 2012 and the next three years.

Moreover, investments in 2015 will grow at the same time in both sectors. Thus the oil sector is expected to receive investment of $ 3.1886 billion manat in 2011 and non-oil sector - 9.048 billion manat. In 2014, the oil sector is projected to receive 5.574.7-billion manat investment and non-oil - 11.101.4 billion manat.

Azerbaijan will also retain the investment attractiveness in the future and 17.5 billion manat will be invested in the development of economic and social spheres of the republic from all financial sources in 2015.
