IMISHLI – On June 19, 2015 residents of the Gobektala community of Imishli rayon, representatives of the local ExCom and the municipality, officials from the Ministry of Economy and Industry (MEI), and USAID representatives gathered to mark the successful completion of the construction of a new medical facility. The facility was constructed under the Socio-Economic Development Activity (SEDA) project in close cooperation with the local NGO, UMID, and co-financed by the governments of the United States and Azerbaijan.
