UN Under Secretary-General: Azerbaijan, Regional Leader in the ICT Sphere

Wu Hongbo, the United Nations Under-Secretary-General, hailed the Internet Governance Forum in Baku, which allows for discussions in the IT development field.

"Organization of such forum in Baku is Azerbaijan's contribution to the IT sphere. I believe that these discussions will support the development of Internet. More than 1/3 of the world is Internet users. Besides, mobile telephone users are over 6 billion. As mobile phones prices reduce, opportunities increase. This process is quick in the developing countries," Hongbo added.

The UN Under Secretary-General noted that Azerbaijan is a regional leader in the ICT sphere and "that the works in Azerbaijan will support surrounding regions."

The Minister of Communication and Information Technologies Ali Abbasov also underlined the challenges that come with the world of instant, digital communication: "Internet development also supports cyber crime. Therefore, we are ready for discussions and cooperation with interesting sides."
