So, 2-3 suicides in the country are not "critical" for the government. It turns out that every day you have to commit 500 suicides, so that the authorities sound the alarm.
Deputy Prime Minister Ali Ahmadov said that "the brain drain from the country is at a non-disturbing level", although in recent years hundreds of Azerbaijani scientists have moved to Turkey. Thousands of Azerbaijanis immigrated to Europe and tens of thousands are looking for ways to do this.
The reason for the "brain drain" is low salaries of scientists, who cannot live normally at 200-250 manat a month.

The newspaper "Echo" in the article "Hotel owners are ruining the tourism potential of Azerbaijan" focuses attention on the problems of the tourism sector.
Because of the increased demand, hotel owners unreasonably raise prices during the period of Novruz Bayram, the head of the Association of Tourism of Azerbaijan, Nahid Bagirov, says.
"In addition, it is worth considering that we have "near" the tourist market of Georgia, which is in high demand. We must understand that they are our direct competitors. Despite the fact that the Georgian tourist market is popular, prices in Georgia are stable.
Even in Turkey, they reduce prices for hotels. Azerbaijani entrepreneurs are short-sighted in the matter of business development, "Bagirov said. Http://en.echo.az/?p=57751
