"The incentive-based tax policy implemented for 3 years has led to significant changes in the labor market.

Jabbarov added that this figure increased by 242,600 and amounted to 782,500.

The minister also said that the reforms aimed at reducing the size of the "shadow economy" and ensuring transparency of turnover have led to a significant increase in tax revenues from the non-oil and gas sector.
