President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has reviewed ??the Flag Square in Agdash.
The tricolor flag with a star and the crescent moon was an attribute of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic and has once again become a symbol of the independence of Azerbaijan.

This is a historical achievement of nationwide leader Heydar Aliyev. After Azerbaijan regained its independence, our national flag was first raised by great leader Heydar Aliyev in Nakhchivan. Respect and reverence for state symbols is the biggest asset left behind by the great leader.

Now this flag flies proudly in the most prestigious international organizations and representative events. Today, every Azerbaijani considers the state flag a source of their pride. This is also explained by the great reverence with which President Ilham Aliyev treats state attributes. It is noteworthy that after the world's tallest flagpole was established in Baku, flag squares were established in many regions of the country. The Flag Square in Agdash and the national flag hoisted there also attract attention with their grandeur.

It was noted that the construction of the Flag Square started in February last year and was completed in April 2014. The height of the flagpole is 52 meters. The pedestal lined with natural marble reflects the map, coat of arms and the national anthem of Azerbaijan. Elements of Azerbaijani national architecture were widely used in the process of construction.

The Flag Square has been extensively landscaped, green areas created and a modern lighting system installed. The square is well suited for the recreation of the people of Agdash.

In accordance with the orders and instructions of President Ilham Aliyev, attention is now being paid to the repairs of local roads in the regions linking villages and towns, as well as settlements with each other.

As part of a visit to Agdash District, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev attended the opening ceremony of a Gilan feed processing factory.

Thanks to the successful continuation by President Ilham Aliyev of the strategy towards socioeconomic reforms whose foundation was laid by great leader Heydar Aliyev, our country keeps developing dynamically. Along with the oil sector of the economy, the development of the non-oil economy has also become sustainable. It is no coincidence that the non-oil sector accounts for most of the gross domestic product. This is a result of the policy towards economic diversification.

The development of the non-oil sector is significantly facilitated by the agricultural reforms carried out in Azerbaijan in recent years. This confirms again the importance President Ilham Aliyev attaches to the development of agriculture and food security in the country. The head of state has always paid attention to maintaining high growth rates in agriculture and the implementation of effective measures in this direction. An important role in this area has also been played by the signing at the beginning of this year of the executive order "On additional measures to improve the operation of the market of agricultural and food products". This document provides for additional measures in the implementation of the "State program on food provision of the population of the Republic of Azerbaijan in 2008-2015", increased agricultural exports, protection of consumer and producer interests in the agricultural sector, and effective operation of the food market. This order is also important from the standpoint of the defining the "Strategy on the development of Azerbaijan’s agribusiness", which reflects the fundamental principles of agricultural policy in the country, strategic goals and priority directions of agricultural development.

Currently, the high productivity and competitiveness of local products, the development of profitable branches of agriculture, more efficient organization of state support for farmers, and food security are important areas of public policy in the agrarian sector. In this regard, special attention is being paid to the development of animal husbandry complexes, provision of the necessary infrastructure and markets, including the promotion of business activities and creation of new enterprises. Quite important from this point of view has been the construction in Agdash of the Gilan feed processing factory. Covering an area of 8 hectares in the Bineler village of Agdash District, it is one of the largest enterprises of the region. The factory consists of a section for the production of feed for poultry and livestock farms, and auxiliary sections.
President Ilham Aliyev reviewed the enterprise.

It was noted that the enterprise combines two factories.

The head of state launched the enterprise.

It was indicated that the section for the production of feed for poultry and livestock farms was based on technology and equipment from well-known foreign companies.

The President of Azerbaijan watched the production process and reviewed finished products of the enterprise.

It was noted that the production capacity of the first factory was 15 tons of compressed feed and 20 tons of open feed per hour. The second factory can produce 45 tons of compressed feed and 55 tons of open feed per hour. In general, the factory with single-shift operation mode will produce 210,000 tons of feed.

It was noted that there are no such factories in the CIS and most European countries. Local products are mainly used as raw materials. To do this, lands have been allocated for growing wheat, barley, maize and sunflower in Samukh, Beylagan, Bilasuvar and Gabala districts. In addition, raw materials not suitable for food will be purchased from existing factories in the country and feed for chickens and cattle will be produced here. As a result of the project, 105 jobs have been created.

All this has been possible thanks to the rapid development of Azerbaijan's economy in recent years.

The attention being paid to the development of agriculture in the country, in particular livestock breeding, has already necessitated the establishment of feed bases, and important steps are already being taken in this direction. To strengthen the livestock feed base, acreage is allocated for feed crops and, given their productivity, funds allocated from the state budget. Also, business entities are provided with preferential loans of the state.

President Ilham Aliyev praised the work done and gave relevant instructions and recommendations.

As part of a visit to Agdash District, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev has attended the opening ceremony of a new railway station building in Laki.

Recent years have seen the implementation of important projects aimed at improving the country's transportation system, including the railway, and organization of the passenger transportation system at the international level. As part of this policy, the construction and major overhaul of railway stations in accordance with modern standards is now under way not only in Baku but also in the regions.

One of the new railway station buildings has been built at Laki station of the "Azerbaijan Railways" CJSC. The building of the Laki railway station has a modern architectural style. The area around the building has been landscaped. The new building has all the conditions for the recreation of passengers.

The head of state reviewed the photo stand describing the previous appearance of the station building. The President of Azerbaijan was shown a diagram describing a project on the reconstruction of the Agdash-Gabala highway.

Transport Minister Ziya Mammadov informed President Ilham Aliyev that the former building of the Laki railway station was constructed in 1897. It had not been renovated for a long time, so it was necessary to knock it down and build a new station. The construction of a new terminal building began in January 2013. The station, built by the department for repairs and construction of railways and technical facilities under the "Azerbaijan Railways" CJSC, is well suited for the provision of services in accordance with modern standards. The waiting room for passengers has all the necessary amenities. It will operate a mother and child room. A special display is available to inform passengers about the schedule of trains. The dispatcher, engineering and communication systems meet modern standards.

There is a bust of nationwide leader Heydar Aliyev in the building, as well as a photo stand describing the visits of the great leader and President Ilham Aliyev to Agdash.

It was noted that the station now has a new platform. Laki is a cargo station. There are four tracks for accommodating trains, six tracks for loading and offloading operations, a track to the towing substation, a protection spur ended track, a towing track, as well as two spur ended tracks belonging to organizations adjacent to the station. During the year, the Laki railway station carries out loading of 150 cars (19,600 tons) and offloading of 2,500 cars (15,000 tons). The station building serves more than 7,000 passengers. The station dispatches an average of 40 trains per day.

It was noted that the construction of the new station building was an important contribution to the development of railway infrastructure and was essential in terms of providing a convenient link with Baku and other districts.

A new fruit processing factory has been commissioned in Agdash.

The opening ceremony was attended by President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.

The diversification of the economy, the dynamic development of the non-oil sector, the increase of its competitiveness and accelerated investments in this sector are among top priorities of the policy towards socioeconomic development pursued by President Ilham Aliyev. In accordance with this policy, our country is attaching special importance to the development of various sectors of the non-oil economy.

It is no coincidence that great progress has been made in the area of industrial development in the last 10 years. Industrial production has increased 2.7 times over this period. Investment in excess of 40 billion manats has been made in the country's industry during this period. At the present stage, in the light of contemporary challenges and new initiatives, a number of important steps are taken to modernize the industry and diversify the non-oil sector. In addition, the focus is also on engaging natural and economic resources, creating, along with traditional industries, new production and processing areas and industrial estates, strengthening the industrial potential of the regions and building the capacity to facilitate the development of innovation-based industry.

The head of state sees non-oil sector growth in creating opportunities for private enterprise development, shows special attention to the private sector, signs executive orders to enable entrepreneurs to make broader use of the opportunities and potentialities of the regions, and takes care of their financial security. To date, the National Fund on Entrepreneurship Support under the Ministry of Economy and Industry has financed investment projects of some 20,000 entrepreneurs throughout the country by providing them preferential loans to the tune of 1 billion 200 million manats. Thanks to the implementation of these projects, more than 116,000 jobs have been created.

The funds provided in accordance with the instructions of the President are used to finance projects aimed at the creation and development of enterprises in priority industries. Currently, these projects cover not only big cities but also the regions. The aim is to provide the market with competitive products through rational use of the resources available in the regions and to facilitate employment. The fruit processing factory built in Agdash will be quite important in this regard.

The head of state reviewed the photo stand describing meetings of great leader Heydar Aliyev and President Ilham Aliyev with the people of Agdash during their visits to the district and participation in the opening of various objects.

Then, President Ilham Aliyev launched the factory.

It was noted that the construction of the enterprise worth 4.2 million manats was carried out using the government’s soft loan of 1.9 million manats provided by the National Fund on Entrepreneurship Support under the Ministry of Economy and Industry. The factory covers an area of 2,000 square meters and consists of sections for the production of dried fruit, concentrated fruit juice and auxiliary sections. The section for the production of dried fruit is based on the technology and equipment from well-known international companies. There is a machine for receiving and washing raw materials, a water filter, a five-tier oven for boiling, and packaging equipment here. Depending on the characteristics of the fruit, the drying process is carried out in several stages. According to the demand, dried fruits are produced mainly from persimmon, grapes, plums, apricots and apples. The harvesting and processing of about 1,200 tons of various fruits are expected during each season. Dried fruits are produced industrially, so they have a different taste, nice appearance and packaging. Finished products will be supplied not only to the domestic market but also to foreign countries.

The section for the production of concentrated fruit juice consists of cooking ovens, cooling, bottling and packaging equipment manufactured ??by the Turkish company STK. This will be the first factory in Azerbaijan to industrially produce concentrated fruit juice that will be widely used in medicine to treat various diseases. According to the demand, there are plans to produce 20 tons of concentrated fruit juice each year. It will mainly be made of fruits such as mulberry, persimmons, grapes and dogwood.

This site is also expected to produce condensed milk, which will be widely used as raw material by factories producing baked goods and ice cream.

The executive director of the National Fund on Entrepreneurship Support under the Ministry of Economy and Industry, Shirzad Abdullayev, informed President Ilham Aliyev about the preferential loans provided to the entrepreneurs of Aran economic region and where they were largely spent. It was noted that 7,612 entrepreneurs had received preferential government loans worth 326.3 million manats to date. These loans have helped create more than 29,000 jobs. Also, preferential loans worth 418.1 million manats were allocated to finance 77 high-tech investment projects, including 10 logistical centers, nine granaries and eight animal husbandry complexes, 12 poultry farms, four dairy plants, two meat processing factories and four factories processing fruits and vegetables, five bread-baking factories, four greenhouses, three fish farms, three viticulture farms, two major grain-growing farms, two companies producing dried fruit, one producing sugar, four producing building materials, as well as four production and processing enterprises. In Agdash District, which is part of this economic zone, 233 entrepreneurs have taken advantage of preferential loans in the amount of 12.4 million manats to date. These loans have helped generate more than a thousand new jobs.

During familiarization with finished products, the head of state was informed that the plant’s needs for raw materials would be met at the expense of production in the district proper and from neighboring districts. This, in turn, will have a positive impact on the development of small family farms and increase the factory’s processing capacity even more in the future.

President Ilham Aliyev was informed that the factory had received international safety management certificate ISO-2005. As a result of the project, 30 jobs have been created.
