Personal Experiences - These Past Ten Years

Elnara MammadovaElnara Mammadova
For me, it's difficult to imagine what it would be like if the Soviet Union had not collapsed. For sure, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to work for one of the largest oil companies in the world and develop my career in a Western business environment or study for an MBA in Baku and travel throughout the world.

I would tell my grandchildren how Azerbaijan's independence began and how our lives have been complicated by war during this transitional period. I would tell them that I was a small part of this history, too, by working with my colleagues in the oil industry to contribute to the economic development of Azerbaijan.

I think that the issues of infrastructure development and economic stability will be the most serious problems that Azerbaijan will have to face these next few years.
