The state programme for development of cotton growing in Azerbaijan for 2017-2022, approved by President Ilham Aliyev in July 2017, has started to show results, according to Bahruz Jamalov, general director of Azercotton LLC (Azerpambig). Cotton production in the Central Asian country has increased from 35,000 tons in 2015 to 207,000 tons in 2017.

Owing to implementation of the state programme, the annual cotton production in Azerbaijan is expected to reach 500,000 tons by 2022, Jamalov said at a scientific-practical conference held to commemorate the 95th birth anniversary of Heydar Aliyev, the third President of Azerbaijan.

The increase in cotton production, under the framework of the state programme, would be achieved through various institutional measures, improving the regulatory framework, strengthening human resources, applying innovative technologies, attracting foreign investments and implementing a number of other measures, an Azerbaijani newspaper said quoting Jamalov.

The increase in cotton production will boost the development of the textile industry in the country. This will, in turn, contribute to “the growth of Azerbaijan’s industrial potential, creation of new jobs and improvement of the welfare of the people,” Jamalov added. (RKS)
