"Government support should be fully appreciated by companies like ours. We aim to do our best to maximize the effectiveness of public support for the private sector, so that ultimately public-private cooperation will lead to the creation of even more profitable agriculture. We want to ensure that the annual food supply from our own resources is even greater. Naturally, state support serves to replace the dependence of domestic production in Azerbaijan on imports, and we are moving towards it. But our business, our investment plans are aimed not only at import substitution. We also aim to produce exported products with high added value as a result of processing local raw materials by attracting high technologies."
