Dr Mahathir takes time out to visit Azersun Green Tech Farm

BAKU, AZERBAIJAN, Oct 26 — Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad took time off from his busy schedule at the 18th Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) Summit here to visit Azersun Holding’s Green Tech Farm.

Dr Mahathir was accompanied by Foreign Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah and Malaysian Ambassador to Azerbaijan Datuk Yubazlan Yusof.

Located on the outskirt of the capital, the farm is a modern 35-hectare greenhouse complex that utilises the state-of-the-art technology in the production of organic vegetables, such as tomato, eggplant, cucumber and chilli.

During the 40-minute tour of the facility, the Malaysian prime minister was briefed on the complex’s operation by Tahir Goozal, vice president of Azersun.

Dr Mahathir also tasted some of the fresh vegetables.

Azersun is the biggest conglomerate in food production, retail and farming sector on the former Soviet Union state. It is also the largest food exporter and producer in Azerbaijan.
