He said that Azerbaijan has potential to overcome the crisis: "I think that our main difficulty will be in 2017. Many industrial enterprises will launch in 2018, the situation will improve. Task set by the President of Azerbaijan is connected with development of non-oil sector. One of the important sectors is agriculture. Financial support should be allocated for agricultural sector. In 2017, 35 million AZN will be allocated for agricultural sector. This is not sufficient amount for lending. As you know, the banking system is paralyzed, there is no opportunity to give credit to entrepreneurs."

Now the districts will manage themselves without subsidy. Agriculture sector has developed in Azerbaijan, productivity increased. Development of agriculture may bring additional revenue to the country."
