Turkey’s Agriculture and Forestry Ministry has provided Azerbaijan with the necessary equipment and materials for the initial activities envisaged to develop animal husbandry and agriculture on the liberated lands, the Ministry of Agriculture has said.
“During June 2021, seminars on the topic ‘Artificial insemination, care and feeding of cattle’ were held at the National Research Institute of Animal Breeding of the Ministry of Agriculture for experts in the field of animal husbandry who will work in the liberated lands. The seminars were held within cooperation between the Ministry of Agriculture of Azerbaijan and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Turkey,” the ministry said.
The main purpose of the training was the exchange of experience with Azerbaijani specialists, especially from Aghdam, Fuzuli, Jabrayil, Kalbajar and Lachin, to prepare highly qualified personnel to achieve the development of cattle breeding and agriculture in the liberated lands.
To transfer the equipment and materials sent from Turkey to the livestock experts, the Livestock Organization and Monitoring Department of Agriculture Ministry organized a meeting in the Fuzuli State Agrarian Development Center.
Additionally, the officials and employees of the National Research Institute of Animal Breeding, the Republican Center for Artificial Insemination and the Fuzuli Center for Agrarian Development took part in the meeting.
Currently, large-scale works are underway in Azerbaijan’s liberated territories.
Azerbaijan has continuously voiced the country’s interest in cooperation with foreign companies in reconstruction works in the liberated territories.
Italy and Israel have already started the implementation of a joint project to turn the liberated Zangilan region into a smart city. An Israeli company is going to build a dairy farm, where with the use of Israeli technology it will be possible to make dairy products, mainly milk.
The government allocated $1.5 billion for reconstruction works in the liberated territories in 2021. In particular, these fund will be used to restore the infrastructure (electricity, gas, water, communications, roads, education, health, etc), as well as cultural and historical monuments.
