“Azerbaijan attaches great importance to its relations with countries from Asia and the Pacific,” said President Ilham Aliyev in his speech in a video format at UN 77th session of Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, APA reports.
“COVID-19 pandemic exposed the world countries to new challenges. The Government of Azerbaijan has taken necessary steps in countering pandemic from the beginning. In order to mitigate the impact of coronavirus on the economy, support business and ensure macroeconomic and fiscal stability the solid socio-economic stimulus package has been released.
We launched vaccination campaign since January. Close to 1, 4 million vaccine doses have already been used. It constitutes 14 % of our total population.
However, the efforts taken on the national level only are not enough to successfully eliminate pandemic,” the head of the state noted.
