Press Review 04/18/2016

Economic reforms in the country, the problem of education abroad, the appeal of the Azerbaijani Embassy in Australia to the government of this country, and the situation around the currency exchange are the leading topics of today's press

The official gazette Azerbaijan writes about the initial positive results of economic and structural reforms.

The author writes about the creation of the Board of Appeal in order to prevent negative aspects in the agricultural sector, business, and other non-oil sectors. However, this reform does not end there, the newspaper says.

The Azadlig published an article entitled "Why is the power afraid of foreign education?" It refers to the reasons for suspension in sending students abroad. The power spends millions on senseless projects. However, they have decided not to waste funds for education.

Apparently, the authorities understand that the students educated in Europe have a different way of thinking and worldview. The authorities do not want to see those who know their rights and demand their observance.

The Yeni Musavat writes about the situation in currency exchange. Exchange offices were closed after the devaluation of December 21, 2015. Now the issue of resuming the work of exchange offices is discussed. MP Vahid Ahmedov proposes to introduce ATMs as exchangers, as is done abroad.

The expert Vugar Bayramov also considers it necessary to restore exchange points. In his opinion, at least four exchange points should work in every district of the capital.  

The Novoye Vremya writes about the strange doings of the Azerbaijani ambassador to Australia Rovshan Jumshudov and his accountant Araz Khasiyev. Without paying the duty, they brought a large batch of alcoholic beverages and cigarettes into the country. This was reported by the leading Australian newspaper The Age. As you know, for the first time it was loudly stated by the former employee of the Embassy Anar Hasanov, who later renounced the citizenship of Azerbaijan, requesting asylum abroad. Australian journalists believe that the goods imported into the country in such a large scale may appear in the "black market."
