It is noteworthy that this CEO Lunch, dedicated to Azerbaijan-US relations, is being held in the anniversary year of the creation of the Club.

He added that members of the board of the Caspian American Club are elected for a two year period, and all the member companies of the Caspian European Club automatically become members of the Caspian American Club.

The CEO Lunch is one of the key tools for establishing a dialogue between the public and private sectors of the countries across the Caspian-Black Sea and Baltic regions, as well as for creating additional opportunities to communicate and establish new business contacts in an informal setting.
