Baku Declaration of First Global Forum on Youth Policies passed

Baku: The First Global Forum on Youth Policies held in Baku has come to an end.

A number of regional sessions were held on the last day of the forum, APA reports. At the regional sessions, the sides discussed the works carried out in Africa, Western Asia, Asia and Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and Caribbean states on youth policies and development, having an exchange of experience among one another’s countries. Later on, the sessions’ moderators reported on the discussions.

Kuwait’s Minister of State for Youth Affairs Sheikh Salman Sabah Al-Salem Al-Homoud Al-Sabah said the forum will give a new impetus to the development of global youth, adding that it will not only be remembered with the Baku Declaration: “We held very important discussions here. We have to be even closer to youths, getting to know what they like. I think the forum will contribute to this issue”.

Azerbaijani Minister of Youth and Sports Azad Rahimov said in his speech the forum has been providing information experience to youths for three days and was very interesting: “We had a look at the past and future, discussing modern day and development. There are also difficulties in development. Unfortunately, today we have some youths joining radical religious groups. Education and exchange of experience are ahead of all things. For us, one of the most essential things is quality education. Azerbaijan is located in a region which is quite vital in geographical terms. We want our youths to be in continuous touch with those in other countries and gain good experience”.

The minister added that Azerbaijan is one of the countries that seriously approach events happening in the world: “I’m sure this forum made history. One of the most interesting aspects of this forum is President Ilham Aliyev’s decision to transfer $1 million to the UN Global Foundation for the countries suffering in the fight against Ebola”.

In the end, the Baku Declaration of the First Global Forum on Youth Policies was passed.
