Azersun Holding has become a general sponsor of the 4th International Caspian Energy Forum-2017 (www.caspianenergyforum.com) which will take place in Baku on April 12 2017.
“I would like to note that the non-oil sector will play an important role in future development of Azerbaijan”, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Azersun Holding Abdolbari Goozal stated. “As President of Azerbaijan said, we must turn ‘black oil’ into a human capital. Business must develop and grow which will also increase the number of working places. Apart from this, it will let the state gain additional income. These funds will remain in the state, which is of big importance. The development of business will also enhance the welfare of the citizens. ‘Road maps’ adopted in Azerbaijan and serving as guidelines for both local and foreign investors are important in this aspect. It is important to bear in mind that production of the export-oriented products will make it possible to contribute substantially to the economic growth of the country”, Abdolbari Goozal emphasized and noted the importance of conduction of the Caspian Energy Forum which became a traditional ground for discussion of projects in different sectors of economy. “In our opinion, Caspian Energy Forum is particularly important from the standpoint of necessity to support joint efforts of the state and private sector for the realization of concrete ideas, projects and innovation products”, Abdolbari Goozal emphasized.
