Deputy Minister Farid Ahmadov emphasized that the main focus of the 74th International Astronautical Congress, which will bring together experts and leaders of the international space community, is the youth. Farid Ahmadov noted that the Congress was aimed at attracting more young specialists and students to the space industry and science.

Dunay Badirkhanov made a presentation on the 74th International Astronautical Congress to be held on October 2-6, 2023. By providing the detailed agenda of Congress, Deputy Chairman of Azercosmos noted that the 74th International Astronautical Congress would bring together around 6,000 participants and create opportunities for cooperation at the regional and international levels.
