According to Nabiyev, the concept of ‘smart cities’ is being prepared in accordance with local requirements and conditions.
"Our approach proceeds from the fact that the same concept cannot be applied to cities located in various districts. Besides, the matter of sustainability and expediency of investing public funds in a particular case is also being studied,” the minister said.
