His Excellency Mr Ilham Aliyev, President of the Republic of Azerbaijan

Dear Mr President,

I would like to thank you dearly for our meeting on the occasion of my visit to Baku for the 4th World Forum on Intercultural Dialogue that took place on May 5-6, 2017.

I was very encouraged once again to learn of your commitment to tourism and its capacity to foster economic growth and I thank you for your continuing support to the sector.

I would also like to express my heartfelt gratitude for bestowing on me the “Dostluq” (Friendship) order of Azerbaijan, which was presented to me during the 105th Session of the UNWTO Executive Council (11-12 May, Madrid) successfully chaired by the Azerbaijani Minister of Culture and Tourism.

Furthermore, I take this opportunity to congratulate you on the occasion of upcoming 28 May Republic Day of Azerbaijan and send you my best wishes for the well-being and prosperity of your country and its people.

Please accept, dear Mr. President, the assurances of my highest consideration.
