İn order to use the local opportunities of our region at once, we must develop winemaking, fruit production, bee-keeping, vine-growing, carpet-making, silk-making and gathering herbs and at the same time professionalism. Our region has a rich environment. We must protect our environment. The main part of the economy of Ismayilli was vine-growing. During Soviet regime it was the most developed. But, after the 90th years these vineyards were destroyed. We must develop this side of our economy nowadays. There are many forests in Ismayilli. We must protect these forests. There is a brickyard in Ismayilli. Sheep-breeding and cattle breeding are developed in Ismayilli. There is also a butter-cheese factory and bread factories in our region. The villages of Ismayilli have some branches of industry for example: the carpet-making profession is developed in Lahic and the production of shawls made from silk is famous in Basqal. We can develop tourism and sanatoriums because our region has suitable nature and climate. We know that in the village Ivanovka we have collective economy too. We may develop this side and at the same time farmer-economy and free enterprises.
