On October 21, leaving Nakhchivan with good  impressions, lady Carole Mary Crofts gave an interview to “Sharg Qapisi” newspaper. Speaking about  the aim of her visit , the ambassador said:

- The aim of my visit is acquaintance with Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic and to learn the collaboration opportunities  between Great Britain and  autonomous republic. I was in Nakhchivan State University and I witnessed a big interest to the English language. While meeting the staff, the teachers and students offered to collaborate with  British Universities in  teaching online English courses and subjects. Simultaneously, I made a speech in front of the students  studying  in the faculty of International Relations and Foreign Languages of the university and answered the students’ questions. The ambassador noted that  there could be  wide collaboration opportunities with Nakhchivan. She said that she got acquainted with local products demonstrated in Business Center in Nakhchivan city. We saw that there were the samples of a lot of products as construction materials, food, clothing, furniture, at the same time, we watched  the local carpet products. It is possible to investigate the collaboration opportunities in these fields. Furthermore, as I noted collaboration opportunities in the fields of education and culture could be wider. We also had meetings with officials and I want to say that there are many branches to learn from each other. It is not difficult to find interesting nuances in the East for the ones who live in Western countries.

-What did you like most when you were in Nakhchivan?

Lady Carole Mary Crofts answered our question as follows; The most memorable thing was the people’s affability and pleasant attitude to us. Food products grown and produced in Nakhchivan are very qualitative. I was informed and I myself witnessed that any product here –from lemon to salt- is distinguished with naturalness and quality. Besides, we were in Duzdag Physiotherapy Center, I was impressed amazingly. I think that the center will always be  memorable for me.
