Two opening ceremonies celebrating the completion of community projects supported by Azerbaijan Rural Investment Project (AzRIP) were held in Mollaisagly and Hajihetemli communities of Ismayilli rayon on December 21, 2011. AzRIP is a project implemented by the State Agency on Agricultural Credits under the Ministry of Agriculture of Azerbaijan Republic, and is funded by both the Government of Azerbaijan and the World Bank. About 5300 community members in total will benefit from the Potable Water Supply projects implemented in both villages.

The ceremonies were attended by notable guests, including Parliament member, Novruz Aslan, Head of Ismayilli rayon Executive Committee, Nizami Alakbarov, AzRIP Director, Subhan Asgarov, AzRIP Deputy Director, Community Development and Capacity Enhancement Manager, Gulbaniz Ganbarova, some staff members from Project Management Unit, Regional Operations Office, Project Assistance Team and community members. All of the speakers emphasized estimable accomplishments and exceptional status of AzRIP which is the clear evidence of ongoing economic development strategy successfully carried out by Mr. Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan. The speakers congratulated the beneficiary communities.

Elderly community leaders from both villages also thanked the representatives of AzRIP for their guidance and dedicated support to Potable Water Supply projects.

These speeches were followed by traditional ribbon cuttings and visits to the sites of the completed projects. To further express their pride and appreciation, amateur ensembles from the villages presented concert programs for all to enjoy. The ceremonies were also attended by television news representatives, and reports highlighting the ceremonies were telecast the same evening.
