They will be equipped by South Korean experts. Training will be conducted for civil servants. Long distance education is also planned to be launched.

The E-government project is a part of a larger Electronic Azerbaijan project. The establishment and development of electronic government in Azerbaijan will lead to the enhancement of fruitful activities of public bodies and ensure their transparency and reduce bureaucracy.
