Geoff's Successful Visit to Azerbaijan

Geoff returns from a business mission to Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan. Geoff
accompanied Milla Perry Jones, sister of Texas Governor Rick Perry, on a trip
hosted by the Turquoise Council in conjunction with SOCAR and the government of
Azerbaijan. While in Baku Geoff met with Rovnag Abdullayev, Chairman of SOCAR,
the state owned oil and gas company. Geoff also met with other officials including
Ambassador Hafiz Pashayev, former ambassador to the U.S. and current Rector of
the Azerbaijan Diplomatic Academy, the US charge d’affaires, and various energy
and foreign ministry officials.

After many important meetings, Geoff relaxed at the new Caspian Sea resort,
Jumeirah Bilgah, which opened May 18, 2012. Geoff was also invited to attend
the national ballet and rounded out his trip as a VIP guest to the 2012 Eurovision
Song finale broadcast live from Baku throughout Europe. Geoff called the trip a
great success, adding “I am very impressed with Azerbaijan and their remarkable
progress since independence in 1991. Baku is a beautiful city. I am grateful for such
warm hospitality, and very appreciate of the Turquoise Council and their hard work
to make the trip such a success – their Texas representative, Alp Yaradanakul, is a
huge credit to the organization.”
