It was organized by five local non-governmental organizations.
Key issues were addressed Accounting Chamber of Azerbaijan (ACA). However, if the pilot in January dialogue with civil society took part in at least apparatchik - head of the department of law and public service Faig Nadzhafov, this time, and he referred to the malaise. So the NGOs themselves and prepared themselves heard several comments.
