In addition, the discussions were organized to make the participants understand how they can make an impact to this world and become a part of global movements.

The Forum was held in two languages: Azerbaijani and English.

At the end of the event one of the invited participants Taewon Seo, EuroKor Business Connector from South Korea shared his impressions.

“It was more than coincidence that I was attracted to the uphill of Baku on the last day of my stay in Azerbaijan. I met the Future of Azerbaijan there at the Leadership Forum. Through insightful and cheerful youths, I could see the bright future of this country. Leadership does not come from authority but from influence. I was deeply impressed by the young generation of Azerbaijan who will lead their country joyfully.

Azerbaijan is the first or the last European country to me who came from the very Far East of the Eurasia continent. I hope to take my part here to build up a prosper able to bridge between Europe and Korea”.

All participants were awarded with certificates. Mutual photos were taken.
