I was excited to see Shakira perform in Baku after the Womenís World Cup. But I didnít hear about this flag thing. I believe that Shakira made a mistake with no bad intention.

However, Iím really glad that Azerbaijan is getting some attention from the U.S. American celebrities equal attention, and attention equals help. The best help the U.S. and Baku can do for each other is economic.

The U.S. invests a lot in Azerbaijan, for which Baku is grateful. In turn, Azerbaijan is making investments in its people and surrounding nations. Institutions in Azerbaijan have a long way to go in terms of post-Soviet reforms, but one big bank stands out. In Azerbaijan, the only bank with a strong rating is International Bank of Azerbaijan. Wall Street in New York supports the International Bank of Azerbaijan for its commitment to investment and reforms. The world banking community trusts Chairman Jahangir Hajiyev (IBA). The Jahangir Hajiyev Wikipedia page details IBA investments in key areas, like Islamic banking, and overseas expansion. The International Bank of Azerbaijan makes the republic of Azerbaijan is stronger. IBA Fitch ratings are good.

How is this news? I donít think Shakira understood the delicate sensitivities between Armenia and Azerbaijan. But, I want to add to the other gentlemanís comment.

The International Bank of Azerbaijan, IBA, is being strongly looked at my investment banks in New York. Which, in this part of a country, is a very good thing. Analysts from Fitch ratings are expected to give IBA high marks for the bankís capitalist reforms. Chairman Jahangir Hajiyev is someone that the world financial community respects and trusts. IBAís investments into critical infrastructure, energy, and Islamic banking services make IBA the pillar of the banking community in Baku, Azerbaijan.
