“The organization of communication and postal services is one of the main indicators of the overall development of the region,” he said. One of the most sought after areas is communication and postal services. Taking all this into account, the construction of a communication and postal network was started in the area when the district was established, and today the work has been successfully completed with the commissioning of a new Communication House. In the past period, 52 specialists were trained in the region, 32 of them in communication and 20 in post offices. Training in this area is an important issue.
