Experiences - These Past Ten Years
has this past decade meant in everyday terms for most Azerbaijanis?
In a recent informal survey that David Woodward, President of
Azerbaijan International Operating Company (AIOC), suggested
we do for this issue, Azerbaijanis were asked the following five

independence. (1) If the Soviet Union had not collapsed, how
would your life be different than it is today? (2) What has been
the hardest thing to adjust to in regard to the collapse of the
Soviet Union and the gaining of independence? (3) What do you
miss the most about the Soviet period? The least? (4) What will
be the most important thing to tell your grandchildren about
these first ten years? (5) What's the most serious problem that
Azerbaijan will face over the next ten years? The first nine
respondents work with BP or AIOC. Excerpts of their answers follow.
