MEDICAL EMPLOYEE: On behalf of all residents of the settlement I express You our deep gratitude for such a beautiful medical center.


ILHAM ALIYEV: Thank you. You know well, construction of this building started 20-30 years ago but left incomplete. Now, on the initiative of your deputy this building has been reconstructed and I can say is in the highest level. Every equipment existing in the world is available here. The most important now is to render good medical service and assure residents of Zira with good service. It is big event for the settlement, at the same time it is the sign of successful works ongoing in this sector in Azerbaijan. Such nice medical centers must be in every point, every village. Because health of people is the major duty. Works are done to improve social state of doctors too. I know, there is huge need for it too. I mean, it will be solved. Both wages will be lifted and necessary equipment purchased yearly. We have lifted wages four times, but it must be lifted still. Would you agree with me? It is of course big job to lift 4 times. But it is not level we want but it will be assured. Our country is developing so that all issues will be solved.  


I wish you success. It is honor to work in this beautiful hospital. There are conditions here for both patients and doctors. Because we must think of both doctors and patients. Working condition is very important for every person.


MEDICAL EMPLOYEE: All this have been achieved at the initiative of Mrs Mehriban Aliyeva and due to Your support. Thank You so much.


ILHAM ALIYEV: None of these existed 3 years ago. I remember, we had come here then. The building was incomplete, none of these existed.


Now, Zira has become the most advanced city of Azerbaijan, is not it? It must be so. Every place of Azerbaijan must be such beautiful. Thank you.
