The non-oil sector, including information and communication, as well as  high technologies, is rapidly developing to ensure the country's sustainable development in line with the policies set by the head of state.

A consistent work is being carried out to bring the modern information and communication technologies infrastructure in line with world standards.

"I would like to point out that the International Journal of Applied and Computational Mathematics published under the auspices of the Ministry of Transport, Communication and High Technologies has ranked 19th out of 252 worldwide in terms of impact.

"Members of the editorial board of the magazine are also here. I greet them and I think that they will continue to work towards increasing the rating of this magazine, which serves the development of science.

The State Program for the implementation of the National Strategy for the Development of Information Society in the Republic of Azerbaijan for 2016-2020 was approved by the Order of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan dated September 20, 2016. The program stipulates for measures for expansion of state, scientific, educational relations in the sphere of high technology, implementation of joint projects with Azerbaijani scientists and specialists abroad.
