"It is more than 2,000 members of staff, 78 percent of which are Azeris," Chief Operating Officer of Baku European Games Operation Committee (BEGOC) Simon Clegg told.
"We at BEGOC lead an incredibly talented team which is a very rich mixture of our expats and dynamic, young, very-well educated and ambitious Azeris," told Simon Clegg.
Acording to Mr Clegg, it is more than 2,000 members of staff, 78 percent of which are Azeris. And this rich mixture has brought together both the experience from the international community, including people like myself that have been involved in previous events, and our Azeri colleagues. One of the most important things is that we will live behind a real human legacy from delivering the first ever European Games. So Azerbaijan will be much better positioned in the future to organize its own events without so much involvement of people from the international community.
