(MENAFN- Trend News Agency)
BAKU, Azerbaijan, September 1. The
Italy-Azerbaijan University will become a center of
Italian-Azerbaijani friendship, President Ilham Aliyev said in a
speech following the exchange of signed
agreements in Roma for the establishment of the academic
cooperation framework for the Italy-Azerbaijan University and
creation of faculties and programs, Trend reports.
'Two documents on strategic partnership have been signed between
Italy and Azerbaijan. We have very strong political and economic
relations. Italy is Azerbaijan's first trading partner. Last year,
our turnover reached 9.6 billion dollars, and in seven months of
this year, it has been 11 billion dollars.
Today's ceremony shows that we will act as a strategic partner
in the field of education in the future. It is no secret that the
development of each country is not determined by natural resources,
but by knowledge, competence and technological progress. In
Azerbaijan, we are channeling the revenues obtained from natural
resources into human capital, and today's event is clear evidence
of that. At the same time, I am sure that the Italy-Azerbaijan
University will become a center of Italian-Azerbaijani friendship.
In other words, I think that today we are witnessing a historic
event. Today is the first day of my working visit to Italy and this
is the first event. I am sure that the upcoming meetings with
Italian leaders will further strengthen our friendship and
partnership,' the head of state said.
