Nearly 20% of entrepreneurs in Azerbaijan are women


November 23, Fineko/ About 20% of Azerbaijani entrepreneurs are women. But when the Association of Entrepreneurs of Azerbaijan was established, this number was few-fold less.

The main burden on the development of this area falls on the shoulders of women, but on the condition that they walk side by side with men along the way.

ABC.AZ reports that by Musa Guliyev, the chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Labor & Social Policy, stated about this.

The MP emphasized that it is necessary to increase the economic rights of women:

"Perhaps, we need to bring entrepreneurial initiatives to them from school. I think we should increase educational work even more. If we have projects that will support women's entrepreneurship, we are ready to introduce them together with you into legislation. These days we have made important changes to the Labor Code."
