We have applied for participation to the district Business Support Center. We managed to partially update the technological equipment, but this is only a small part of what can be done to improve the working conditions at the plant. We need to keep pace with the time, study and apply advanced expertise and skills possessed by foreign experts, thus, to take advantage of the component "Senior Professionals". I think that this support mechanism will favorably influence the further development of the enterprise", - the head of the plant Ismail Agayev said.
