The condition created for the development of entrepreneurs, agriculture has provided employment of people, as well as raised the living level.

On August 29, British citizen Paul Fisher paid a visit to Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic. He posted information about Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic on “Facebook” and “Instagram” social networks when he returned his country. Paul Fisher mentions Nakhchivan is the homeland of the Prophet Noah: “As legend has it, when Noah’s Ark passed through these lands on the way to Ararat (now in modern day Turkey), it struck  the mountain of Hachadag so hard that it made a notch in the rocky peak of the mountain. Nakhchivan purports to be ‘the land of Noah - a claim that gives it its very name. One of the many tombs in the world testifying to the death of the father of Shem was built here”.
