BAKU, 20 May 2019 – Some 400 young people attended training sessions on development and implementation of business ideas in the agrarian sector within the Agrarian Employment Enhancement Project (AMAL) jointly implemented by FAO and Agrarian Credit and Development Agency under the Ministry of Agriculture. The attendees are young people who successfully passed the second stage of the project.

One-week training course titled “Create your business idea” started on 15 April and took place in Ismayilli, Balakan, Agjabedi, Aghdam, Neftchala, Goranboy, Saatli, Imishli, Zagatala, Aghdash and Barda districts of Azerbaijan.

Internationally certified trainers of the International Labour Organization delivered training sessions on the identification of business ideas and design of business plans, marketing, expenditure calculation, investment management, cash circulation and legal literacy.

These training courses will allow young people to use their skills and knowledge in any workplace regardless of their field of study, such as effective management and assessment of their businesses and plans.

It should be noted that more than 1,000 young people applied to AMAL through the project’s website (amal.gov.az) and only 400 of them successfully passed the second stage of the project.

AMAL is an initiative of the Ministry of Agriculture aimed at supporting young people living in rural areas to implement business ideas in the agricultural sector and stimulate their innovative methods. The project will inform young people about effective and environmentally friendly new agricultural models and management methods. It will also support to form the initial capital of young farmers.
