It was also noted that the improvement of internet services is a necessary precondition for the successful establishment of e-governance. Lawyer Alimammad Nuriyev blamed the prevalence and importance of face-to-face relationships between citizen and officials for much of the corruption in Azerbaijan, and said that e-governance will reduce corruption by limiting these citizen-state interactions. It was mentioned that e-government initiatives have been established at the Ministry of Taxes and at the Ministry of Labour and People’s Social Defense.
