We should invest in green and sustainable transport systems, in the integration of renewable energy sources and the reduction of carbon emissions to ensure a more sustainable future, said Mikayil Jabbarov, the Minister of Economy of Azerbaijan as he delivered a speech during the topic "Transformation of the SPECA region into a global communication hub" within the framework of the SPECA Economic Forum, APA-Economics reports.

According to him, climate change is a global problem that we cannot ignore. This issue must be considered during investments.

“Energy connectivity is not just about electricity transmission or oil and gas flow, in the context of the SPECA program, but is key to unlocking the full potential of our region as a global connectivity hub,” – the Minister added.
