Subsidized tariffs for liberated lands under consideration


July 6, Fineko/ The Azerbaijani government is considering the possibility for entrepreneurs operating in the liberated territories to pay for electricity, natural gas and water at subsidized tariffs.

ABC.AZ reports that Elkhan Shiriyev, deputy chairman of board of the Agency for the Development of Economic Zones under the Ministry of Economy, informed about this.

"I think the package of these benefits will be presented to the government within 1-1.5 years," he said.

According to Shiriyev, in addition, a list of raw materials will be compiled: "Based on the list, it is expected that some types of raw materials will be exempt from customs duties. This is done to ensure economic activity. When new production facilities are created in the liberated territories, entrepreneurs will become more competitive."
