Presidents of Azerbaijan and Turkey Ilham Aliyev and Recep Tayyip Erdogan respectively laid the foundation of Dost Agropark in the Zangilan District on October 26: “A modern buffalo and buffalo milk processing plant is being built in the agro-park. There are jobs for our residents in that enterprise. There are no problems with jobs at all,” the chairman of the Agrarian Service Agency added.
Speaking about the development of the smart city and smart village concepts, Mirza Aliyev noted that the concept document is ready: "The document has been sent to relevant government agencies for consideration. The concept document reflects the minimal elements of a village. If we look at any smart village worldwide, we see that the important issue is to provide people with a comfortable lifestyle and jobs. A village must be self-sufficient."
