Baku, Azerbaijan, July 21

So, 102 affordable apartment buildings were built last year in the Sergeli district of Tashkent city, 4,088 families purchased apartments in those buildings.
The construction of 638 multi-storey buildings accommodating 28,000 apartments is continuing in the capital in the current year.
"We have never before built so many apartment buildings in Tashkent. It has been planned to build 72 seven-storey buildings on one residential area," Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
The head of state instructed to use modern achievements of housing construction, to start the construction of such houses in other places.
