President: Azerbaijan’s financial situation is inaccessible for many countries
“Azerbaijan will continue to pursue regular policy for economic diversification. This policy yields results. Dependence on oil is decreasing today. However, we mustn’t forget that the oil and gas will be the driving force of our economy for long years. Non-oil sector, especially this year, was seriously reformed, and our export increased sharply. Outcomes of the nine months are positive. Agriculture, non-oil sector, non-oil industry are growing. Our currency reserves are increasing and must increase in the next years too. The currency reserves increased $4.5 billion in the nine months of 2017. While considering the low oil price, this is a great achievement. This achievement shows that our financial situation is stable. Azerbaijan’s financial situation is inaccessible for many countries.

Therefore, the reforms in economic and regional development fields will be deepen and this will allow us to get more benefit from non-oil sector”, President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the solemn ceremony marking the 25th anniversary of the founding of the ruling New Azerbaijan Party, APA reported.
