Directions of development of the country's economy, a sharp decrease in trips of Azerbaijani citizens abroad, the complexity of social targeted assistance, and economic problems in the post-oil period are the leading topics of today's press.
The newspaper Azerbaijan writes that the brand Made in Azerbaijan has already won glory in the world, as it was announced at a meeting on April 17 with the participation of Ilham Aliyev and non-oil entrepreneurs.
Echo writes about a sharp decrease in trips of Azerbaijani citizens abroad, compared to last year. The overwhelming majority of the population saves literally everything, and therefore citizens cannot leave the country. The maximum where average citizens of Azerbaijan can afford to leave is Georgia and Turkey, where prices are lower than in European countries.
In 2016, citizens exported $ 1.5 billion abroad, of which $ 800,000 was spent on purchases and recreation.
