Azerbaijani hotels themselves set price policies – minister

The state doesn’t influence the pricing in hotels in Azerbaijan, said the country’s minister of culture and tourism, Abulfas Garayev.

“The prices are set by entrepreneurs. The state can only instruct them, hold trainings and give recommendations on pricing,” Garayev said at a ceremony of awarding the winners of the “Tourism and Media: Joint Activities on the Way to Development” contest in Baku July 11.

The minister said there is no monopoly in Azerbaijan’s tourism market and everyone can be engaged in this sector.

The development of tourism is one of the priorities in Azerbaijan, according to the minister.

Garayev also noted that international events held in Azerbaijan positively affect the development of tourism.
