Parviz Hidayev, manager of the planning and development department at ANAMA
- The Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) was founded in 1998 by the National Leader of Azerbaijan Heydar Aliyev. In the year 2000, the agency began demining areas of the country. We mainly operate in the border regions, searching the terrain for unexploded ordnance. We also operate in so-called suspicious areas.
The operation involves mine detecting experts, support staff, mine-clearing mechanical machines and specially trained dogs.
Since then, millions of square meters of land have been cleared and hundreds of thousands of unexploded ordnance found and neutralized.
We participated at the first ADEX exhibition. I can say with certainty that the second exhibition is organised at a higher level, both in terms of technical issues and the composition of the participants. Even before the exhibition we had established an excellent relationship with the organisers and potential issues were solved on the spot, which made us very happy!
