According to the minister, reconstruction of the liberated areas from the occupation in Karabakh and East Zangazur is our new mission: “President Ilham Aliyev mobilized Azerbaijani people to realize this mission. This mission consists of executing the Great Return program. As a result of this, these areas will also be reintegrated into Azerbaijan’s economy. The foundation of major projects in Karabakh and East Zangazur is laid, and some part of these projects has already been completed and put into operation. AZN 3 bln. was approved in the state budget for 2023 for the restoration of these areas. 60 percent of this fund has already been spent.”
