Azer News - - Nation - By Rashid Shiri­nov

Azer­bai­jan and the UN plan to im­ple­ment projects worth more than $18 mil­lion in 2018 within the frame­work agree­ment on part­ner­ship, Deputy Min­is­ter of Econ­omy of Azer­bai­jan Sev­inj Hasanova said on June 12.

She made the re­marks in Baku at a meet­ing of the Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee es­tab­lished un­der the agree­ment.

Hasanova re­minded that projects worth $16.5 mil­lion were im­ple­mented in 2017 within this doc­u­ment.

“As many as 47 projects have al­ready been im­ple­mented within this plat­form. The to­tal cost of projects un­der the signed agree­ment is $72 mil­lion,” the deputy econ­omy min­is­ter said.

She added that the projects cover three main ar­eas – the first one is the di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion of the econ­omy and en­sur­ing de­cent work, the sec­ond one is im­prov­ing the in­sti­tu­tional ca­pac­ity and qual­ity of ser­vices pro­vided to ci­ti­zens, and the third area is risk as­sess­ment in con­nec­tion with en­vi­ron­men­tal prob­lems and im­prov­ing gov­er­nance in this area.

Soon af­ter the restora­tion of its in­de­pen­dence, Azer­bai­jan be­came a mem­ber of the UN in 1992. From the very be­gin­ning of its mem­ber­ship in the UN, Azer­bai­jan has been work­ing ac­tively to de­velop mu­tual re­la­tions and to di­ver­sify the co­op­er­a­tion with the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Presently, Azer­bai­jan has spe­cial links with the ap­pro­pri­ate UN agen­cies and bod­ies, such as the United Na­tions De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme (UNDP) and the United Na­tions In­dus­trial De­vel­op­ment Or­ga­ni­za­tion (UNIDO). Dif­fer­ent projects and pro­grams aimed at im­prov­ing the liv­ing stan­dards, struc­tural ad­just­ments of the econ­omy are car­ried out in close co­op­er­a­tion with them.
