My first degree in Economics, International Economical Relations and Management from Azerbaijan State Oil Academy . My academic performance has been always on top of class, both, at the secondary school and at the university. Beside of this, I made a lot of academic researches and experiences in economic field during the university years . In addition, I was the receipent of scholarship's State Oil Academy during the four years, British Petroleum(Azerbaijan branch). at the last course of the university and SOCAR's fullbright scholarship.

Moreover, I would like to emphasize that our countries have got similar hallmarks in economical, social and locality fields..Thus, oil, gas and fishing constitute major economical durability both countries.
