The 12th Summer Energy School is underway at the ADA University. Oil revenue management was discussed on the next day of the program. Deputy Executive Director of the State Oil Fund of Azerbaijan Israfil Mammadov informed the attendees of the summer school about Azerbaijan’s oil revenues and the effective management of these funds.
“He explains how Azerbaijan uses the oil revenues. Furthermore, about our successes in comparison with other countries in a global context and about the topics that need to be studied,” Chair of Caspian Center for Energy and Environment Elnur Soltanov said.
One of the interesting aspects of the program is that there are many women, attending the summer energy school. Although the energy sector is an area, which is mostly dominated by men, half of the participants are women.
“The sector that I am involved is also the energy sector. I have studied economics and did not have enough information about the energy sector. I have learned this sphere because of my work. I have gained a lot of knowledge here, and I hope I will learn new information in the coming days,” Aygul Tarlan, a participant said.
“It has been really a nice experience. I enjoy being in the classes. The professors are really nice and have a lot of passion to the topic. This school is really great. It is really modern. Everyone here are too kind and really nice to us. I really enjoy my time here,” Tabata Nayaj, a participant from Mexico said.
“I really liked this program, because it is a new experience. It is the first time that I travel outside the American continent. I really like the place and the city a lot. We have been learning a lot about the culture. And it is a really nice experience,” participant from USA Valeria Arce added.
