EU realizes almost 50 twinning projects in Azerbaijan
The EU has successfully implemented 48 twinning projects in Azerbaijan since 2007, the head of the Operations Section at the EU Delegation in Azerbaijan, Jeroen Willems, said at the event, dedicated to summing up the implementation of the joint twinning project by the EU and the Taxes Ministry of Azerbaijan on the improvement of human resource management in Baku.
"This is a very good figure, and it, in particular, exceeds the number of projects in Georgia and Moldova. In 2017, we plan to begin the 50th jubilee twinning project," AzerNews cited him as saying.
He added that over 30 public institutions took advantage of the realized twinning projects in Azerbaijan. "This increases the level of cooperation between the different administrations. I am very pleased that the Taxes Ministry is one of these institutions," Willems said.
According to Willems, the EU and Azerbaijan mark the 25th anniversary of their partnership in 2016. "But I would also like to point out that next year will be 10 years since we started the joint implementation of the twinning projects," he concluded.
