BSEC committee meeting underway in Baku - UPDATED


The 48th meeting of the Cultural, Educational and Social Affairs Committee of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC) is going on in Baku. 

 

Addressing the meeting, the committee deputy chairman, Ozcan Ulupinar, called for decisive steps to improve the healthcare system in BSEC countries, APA reported.  

 

In his speech, first vice-speaker of the Azerbaijani Parliament Ziyafat Asgarov underscored the need for joint efforts to address the global political and economic problems.   

 

“The world has never felt such need for cooperation before. It also refers to the BSEC region,” he said.

 

He noted that over the past years, Azerbaijan has achieved economic progress, increased its economic potential and ensured the development of the healthcare system.

 

“As one of the important directions of the long-term development strategy carried out by Azerbaijan’s president, immense healthcare reforms are being implemented and investments are being made. More than 500 medical centers have been constructed or repaired. Mortalities among mothers and babies have decreased sharply. In this regard, familiarity with the experience of developed countries and international cooperation are of great importance. The fact that the human factor is a top priority in the policy of the head of state is proved by the reforms in the healthcare field,” added the vice-speaker.

 

Later on, BSEC Parliamentary Assembly Secretary-General Asaf Hajiyev made a speech and wished the committee success.
