The Order was presented by Azerbaijani Economy Minister Mikail Jabbarov at a ceremony.​

By the decision of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Aliyev of April 25th, 2022, Hisarcıklıoğlu was awarded the ‘Order of Friendship’ for his activities for the development of Türkiye-Azerbaijan economic relations, his contributions to the economic development of the Republic of Azerbaijan and his work in the field of entrepreneurship. The Order of Friendship was presented in Baku yesterday by the Minister of Economy of Azerbaijan Mikail Jabbarov with the participation of Ambassador of the Republic of Türkiye to Baku Cahit Bağcı and businessmen.

Rifat Hisarcıklıoğlu, emphasizing that Türkiye and Azerbaijan are a single nation with two two states, thanked President Ilham Aliyev and Economy Minister Mikail Cabbarov on behalf of the Turkish business world for the ‘Order of Friendship’ awarded him.

- We stand with Azerbaijan

Hisarcıklıoğlu said, “First of all, I congratulate the glorious victory of brotherly Azerbaijan. This victory has made us all proud. It has ended a great injustice. As the Turkish business world, I once again congratulate Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev, who saved Karabakh from occupation by showing great leadership. We, as the business world, stand by Azerbaijan with all our possibilities.”

- Reconstruction of Karabakh

Stating that the business people of the member countries of the Turkic Chamber of Commerce and Industry met in Shusha for the reconstruction of Karabakh, Hisarcıklıoğlu made the following statement: “We are ready to do our part for the development of the region and the strengthening of peace. We were in Shusha, the symbol city of Karabakh, for our message of cooperation and support. As the Turkic Chamber of Commerce and Industry, we organized a forum with the participation of businesspeople from the Turkic world for the construction and restructuring of the regions liberated from the Armenian occupation. About 200 businesspeople from Türkiye, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Hungary took part.

Now it is in our hands to make Karabakh and Shusha a shining star like Baku and other Azerbaijani cities. Undoubtedly, Karabakh will regain its former glory and self-identity. New roads in the liberated areas will expand logistics capabilities. From agriculture to tourism, from food, from industry to informatics, we must make Karabakh a center of attraction.”
