A delegation from Azerbaijan visited Portland Adult Education (PAE) on Thursday, Sept. 26. The delegation is touring New England and was invited to visit Maine by the Azerbaijan Society of Maine, according to Tarlan Ahmadov, state refugee coordinator for the Office of Maine Refugee Services. One goal is attracting Azerbaijani investors to Portland and Maine, Ahmadov said.

He said he asked for the meeting at PAE because “it is the alma mater for almost all of the members of our community.” He said the purpose of the PAE visit, during which the delegation met with PAE Executive Director Anita St. Onge, was to “share the best practices of this wonderful institution.”

The group’s planned itinerary also included meeting with University of Southern Maine President Glenn Cummings and his staff to learn more about USM’s students and research projects, and also meetings with the Maine International Trade Center, the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce, and the Portland Public Library.
