Of course, your experienced employees will work in the first stage but they must be replaced with trained local staff only in a couple of years.
I know very well the history of Holcim’s coming here. I remember when then-head of Holcim came up to me with such a proposal in Davos. I agreed right away and the plant was built in a short span of time. After that, the interest in cement production grew in Azerbaijan. Until then, we imported cement. Today, we have a competition and this is very good. However, Holcim maintains product quality either way.”
