Elchin Babayev emphasized that it is necessary to consolidate the knowledge given in practice and it will benefit both institutions.
Chairman of the Social Services Agency Vugar Behbudov gave detailed information about social services provided to vulnerable population groups. He noted that the Agency is constantly working to organize these services efficiently and effectively, and to increase accessibility to social services. In this regard, it is necessary to cooperate with higher education institutions that provide specialist training for social services.
