December 7, Fineko/abc.az. "Every year we can build several tankers, bulk carriers, Ro-Ro vessels, ferries."

ABC.AZ reports that President Ilham Aliyev stated about this at the commissioning ceremony of tanker "Academician Khoshbakht Yusifzade", built at the Baku Shipyard by order of the Azerbaijan Caspian Shipping Company CJSC.

The head of state said: "The foundation for the creation of this tanker was laid 9 years ago with the commissioning of the shipyard. And I made this decision. At that time, some believed that this was not necessary, since we buy ships, tankers from other countries. But I knew it would make a big difference. Now we do not depend on anyone, there is a professional team and experience. So all construction work here is carried out by local specialists. Every year we can build several tankers, bulk carriers, Ro-Ro vessels, ferries."
