Baku – APA-Economics. Most of the new buildings, which you see in Baku, are private investments, therefore they cannot be empty, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev said at the meeting with a group of participants of the 5th News Agencies World Congress while answering the President of Bulgarian news agency BTA Maxim Minchev’s question “Mr President, I was in Baku last year before the first European Games. Now one hour ago when we were coming here we saw many buildings, which are empty. What will happen with this large sports infrastructure in the future?”.
The head of state said these are hotels, office centers and apartment buildings.
“As regards sports facilities, which we renovated and created on the eve of the European Games, they are functioning. For instance, our Olympic stadium is functioning, and we have football matches there. Our Aquatic center, which we built on the eve of the Games, is also functioning. And so are many other facilities. All these sporting facilities, which you see in Baku, are functioning as well as all the others. I cannot talk about every specific building because I don’t know which you mean, but most of them are working. Some of them are in the process of construction”.
