February 3, Fineko/abc.az. We'll have to start from scratch. And in this regard, we’ll need good partners in this area of our activities.

"Of course, your activities in Azerbaijan and the projects you are implementing help us increase the non-energy sector of our industry.

This is a real demonstration of the industrialization program, and cooperation with a leading international company such as Maire Tecnimont, which has certainly helped and will help us in the future," the president said.
