One of the greatest Olympic villages in the world will be built in Baku for the First European Games Baku 2015, Jim Scherr, the Chief Operating Officer of Baku 2015 European Games Operation Committee, told Trend.

"The Olympic village in Baku will have great infrastructure," he said, adding that all facilities for the First European Olympic Games will meet the highest requirements and will be of high quality.

Scherr stressed that the Organizing Committee is controlling all preparatory activities for holding the Games, including the restoration of existing facilities, construction of new ones and modernization of the transport infrastructure.

"Several operations have already been finished," he added. "If taking into account that we still have two and a half years, then, you can witness for the next three or four months, that a big part of the work will be completed."

Sherr said that organizing the competitions, guest reception and customer service will be brought to the highest level for the beginning of the Games.

"Of course, there is still a lot of work to be done," he said. "So, the operations are being conducted on a tight schedule. Considering that little time left before the competitions, of course, we will rapidly continue working."

The General Assembly of the European Olympic Committee was held in Rome on December 7-8, 2012. The representatives of 49 National Olympic Committees have by the secret ballot and a majority of votes chosen Baku to be the host city of the inaugural European Games to start in Baku in 2015.
