Gabala, April 10, AZERTAC

The successes attained by Azerbaijan over the past two decades underscore the effective identification of strategic development directions in the country. The development of regions is a crucial component of the continuous socio-economic development strategy successfully implemented in the country. Regional development, identified as a priority direction in the country's socio-economic development strategy, has led to increased entrepreneurial activity among the population, the implementation of infrastructure projects in regions, and the creation of new facilities and objects producing competitive and export-oriented products meeting international standards, thus significantly improving the welfare of citizens. Significant work has been done in the construction of modern educational infrastructure, renewal of the content and improvement of the quality of education in remote cities, towns, and villages of the country.
The rapid development of regions can also be clearly seen in the example of the Gabala district. In recent years, numerous new school buildings, kindergartens, and medical centers have been built and put into operation in the region. Moreover, significant efforts have been made in the construction and reconstruction of important national, inter-regional, and local roads. President Ilham Aliyev's recent visit to the Gabala district on April 9 exemplifies the unwavering attention and commitment to the socio-economic development of regions, evidenced by the inauguration of the new secondary school building in Bum settlement, the Gabala District Central Hospital, the opening of the "Hajialili" power substation, the Regional Training Center and the unveiling of a new road.

A modern building accommodating 624 local students has been constructed to meet the contemporary requirements for a secondary school

Construction of the new building of the 624-seat Tabriz Yagubov secondary school in the settlement of Bum of the Qabala district brought joy to school staff. Acting school principal Ramil Mammadov told AZERTAC correspondent that the previous school building, erected in 1983, failed to meet modern standards and was in a dilapidated state, necessitating the construction of a new facility. The construction of the Bum settlement secondary school commenced in December 2021. The new school building comprises 26 classrooms, laboratories for chemistry, physics, and biology, 2 computer science classrooms, 2 technology classrooms, a library, an assembly hall accommodating 195 seats, a gymnasium, and an 80-seat canteen.

Physical education teacher Tofiq Garagozov, who shares feelings of joy, said: "I have been working at this school for forty years. Believe me, there is no limit to my happiness today. We have all been eagerly awaiting the day when the new school would be put into use. We have worked in difficult conditions for many years. Despite all the hardships, we worked with all our might to raise our students as knowledgeable, skilled, and worthy young people for our homeland."

The district central hospital, which was put into operation during President Ilham Aliyev's visit to the Qabala district on April 9, provides comprehensive medical services not only to the residents of Gabala but also to the entire population of the district.
