Azerbaijani state budget for 2015 prepared in terms of possible impact of global processes

Positive qualitative changes in the economy of Azerbaijan were reflected in the draft budget for 2015, said the Speaker of the Milli Majlis (Parliament) Ogtay Asadov at a plenary session of the Parliament to discuss the draft law On State Budget for 2015.

He said that the draft budget for 2015 has been prepared taking into account the real level of development of the country and the possible negative impact of economic and political processes taking place in the world.
