It is very significant that issues such as decarbonisation, increasing green energy forms, as well as affordable and safe energy supplies, which have become a global challenge, are at the top of the agenda of this year’s Energy Week dialogue. At the same time, the Baku Energy Forum has continued the tradition of the Caspian Oil and Gas Conference, which has gained the status of a major event in the energy sector and expanded its agenda with new energy segments.ILHAM ALIYEV

We presented a separate stand at the exhibition, we had many meetings in the capital of Azerbaijan - with SOCAR and other companies, and we think that the negotiations will be rewarding.
We had the opportunity to hold fruitful discussions with the colleagues from Azerbaijan, Turkiye, Bulgaria, Serbia, the United States and the European Union.
