May 23, Fineko/ The amount of financing allocated for food safety last year has been announced.

ABC.AZ informs that this is reflected in the annual report on execution of State Budget 2023.

According to the report, ensuring food safety in Azerbaijan, including increasing the level of self-sufficiency in basic foodstuffs, is one of the important directions of socio-economic policy pursued in the country.

Taking into account the additional costs associated with attracting new lands to crop rotation from the occupation-liberated territories in accord with the ongoing reforms in the agricultural sector, 457.7 million manats were spent on financing measures to ensure food safety in Azerbaijan as state financial support for agricultural producers.
