Hajigabul, 12 October 2019 – The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Ministry of Agriculture launched today the first joint agrotourism tour as part of a broader public-private partnership initiative in Hajigabul that aims to promote the benefits of rural tourism and sustainable farming for economic and community development.  A fairly young region of Azerbaijan established only 3 decades ago, Hajigabul is currently home to a vibrant flora, fauna and numerous architectural monuments of cultural and historical significance and has a great potential to become one of Azerbaijan’s well-established agrotourism destinations.

The agrotourism tour took place at a private farmland in the Meyniman village of Hajigabul owned by the Red Valley private company with the organization of UNDP and the Agrarian Supply and Procurement Open Stock Joint Company under the Ministry of Agriculture. The event brought together over 70 people from among the country’s business community, government agencies and diplomatic missions, along with a number of other national and international visitors.
