Press Review - January 25, 2018

The level of press freedom in the country, the reasons for the outflow of capital from the country, and a look at the statements about the successful development of Azerbaijan are the leading topics of today's press.

The newspaper Azerbaijan comments on the low rating of press freedom in Azerbaijan given to President Ilham Aliyev at the Davos Forum.

The author quotes Ilham Aliyev's response that freedom of the press and freedom of speech have been ensured in Azerbaijan since 1993, and since 1998 there has been no censorship in the country.

Further listed in the article are all the conditions that are created for journalists. The author of the article writes that there is a blackening campaign against Azerbaijan, which proceeds from a zealous attitude towards the successes of Azerbaijan, as well as from pro-Armenian circles.

The website writes that the statements of the Azerbaijani authorities about the rapid development of the country are not grounded. The author recalls the repeated devaluation and the rapid growth of prices.

Even when a country falls into the "black list", the authorities still continue to talk about development.

The author comments on Ilham Aliyev's speech at the Davos forum, where the head of state spoke about the low level of poverty and the jobs created.

The article says that there is no normal management in the country, and the population is looking for opportunities to travel abroad.

The newspaper Echo published an article on the outflow of capital from the country.

For the past three years, the economic situation in the country has been unstable and many citizens have exported money from the country by legal and illegal means.

Today, the outflow began to decline, and the main outflow was in 2015 and 2016.

During this period, serious sums were exported abroad. Even foreign investors saw that the Azerbaijani economy is stabilizing, so they slowly began to return.

Over the past year, a number of major investment agreements have been signed, which will give impetus to the development of the economy and increase the investment attractiveness of the country.
