Azerbaijani President: SGC Advisory Council to hold 7th meeting in coming days
The 7th meeting of the Advisory Council of the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) will be held in two days, Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev said as he received Minister for European Neighbourhood and the Americas at the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office Wendy Morton.
The meeting will review the achievements and look forward to future cooperation, the head of state noted.
“And of course, investments from the UK to Azerbaijan helped us a lot to modernize the country. These investments were mainly in the energy sector, almost 30 billion dollars. But it allowed us to use properly the revenues from oil and gas sales to diversify the economy. Therefore I am sure that for the coming years our major area of concentration will be the non-energy sector development of Azerbaijan,” President Aliyev added.
