The use of foreign languages in advertising maybe allowed in Azerbaijan.

The issue is reflected in amendments proposed to the law "On State Language of Azerbaijan".

Under the draft law, an advertiser may use other language besides the national one on the outdoor advertising structure (a billboard).

In this case the text in foreign language should be placed under the national language and should be smaller than the state language in size, as well as should occupy no more than 1/3 of the whole area.

The issue will be discussed at the plenary session of the Parliament on November 29.

Meanwhile, another amendment be on spotlight of the Parliament will be ban on advertising infant formula to parents. 

Under the amendments proposed to the law "About nutrition of infants and young children", the advertising of artificial feeding for pregnant women and mothers will be banned in health facilities and public places.
