Ilham Aliyev: It is more difficult to create free economic zones in countries such as Azerbaijan


July 1, Fineko/abc.az. "We had to carry out organizational work and create such conditions to be able to attract investors. It is clear that Azerbaijan is one of the countries that do not have access to the open seas, the creation of free economic zones in such countries is much more difficult."

ABC.AZ reports that this was stated by President Ilham Aliyev in an interview for Azerbaijani television after the ceremony of laying the foundation of the Alat Free Economic Zone.

"Since in countries with favorable geographical location, these zones have achieved great success, primarily due to their geographical location. Therefore, as for us, we had to work even more efficiently, taking into account this geographical location, and offer investors more attractive conditions," the head of state said.
