Last year, 35% of television and radio broadcasts were restored in the liberated territories of Azerbaijan, the Ministry of Digital Development and Transport reported.
The remark was made during the state award ceremony for employees in the field of communication and information technology. During the event, information was provided on the achievements of the ministry last year, in particular, the work carried out in the liberated territories.
At the same time, a 4G mobile technology network has been deployed in some 50 percent of the vacated land and postal services have been launched in four directions.
Noting that the installation of 1,400 km of fiber optic lines is continuing, it was reported that currently more than 1,500 km of roads, three airports and strategic railways are under construction.
In addition, it was noted that 150,000 homes have fiber optic lines capable of providing modern high speed internet. By the end of 2024, 100% of homes will have high-speed internet using modern technology, the ministry said.
It was added that in 2021, the procedure for issuing badges for vehicles was simplified, the rules for distributing “permit forms” for international road transport were changed and the process for issuing certificates to people from sea has been simplified.
Currently, work is underway to restore the liberated territories of Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan will rebuild its recently liberated territories in four stages. The initial stage includes solving the problems of governance and security, infrastructure, while the following stages include solving the problems of social service activities, reconstruction and development of the economy.
Azerbaijan has allocated $ 1.5 billion for the reconstruction of the liberated territories in 2021 and AZN 2.2 billion ($ 1.2 billion) in 2022. These funds will be used in particular to restore infrastructure (electricity, gas, water, communications, roads, education, health, etc.), as well as cultural and historical monuments.
