Addressing to the participants, the Chairman of the State Committee for Urban Planning and Architecture emphasized that President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev identified the systematic implementation of reconstruction and urban planning processes in the country as a priority and emphasized the great role of planners in this work: "Young designers should not be left out of the ongoing urban planning processes in our country, they should take an active part. It is gratifying that today most of the participants in the first stage of the architectural competition, which covers some settlements of Absheron, are young people. The Committee is always ready to support all young people specializing in architecture and urban planning, and encourages them to actively cooperate."
