He regularly organizes meetings with young people, listens to them, and does a great job to lift problems facing our youth. The decree of the head of state on the approval of the State Program "Youth of Azerbaijan in 2017-2021" and the measures envisaged by the state program signed by the head of state on September 15, 2017 are indications of the state policy carried out in this direction.
