In partnership with British Council, PASHA Bank implements three-year project for the development of business journalism in Azerbaijan. The project is focused on the promotion of professional abilities and skills of local mass media covering the economics-related issues.

As an institution providing financial services we follow the policy of transparent business and openness for the public, and are interested that Azerbaijan journalists covering the issues of economics have the highest level of knowledge and access to a direct exchange of experience with their foreign colleagues. The project consists of the training program organized for journalists with a number of specific media courses under the guidance of professional trainers from abroad as well as a study trip of the local journalists to Great Britain, within the framework of which meetings and exchange of experience of Azerbaijan journalists with their colleagues from leading newspapers, TV and other media organizations of Great Britain take place. The programme is implemented in cooperation with the Thomson Foundation which is one of Europe's biggest media organisations empowering thousands of journalists worldwide to generate and sustain a diverse media and working in over 100 countries towards encouraging the highest ethical and practical standards in media.

The main objective of the project is to create a leading group of journalists covering the issues of economics who, having familiarized themselves with the vast experience of European colleagues, will be able to use the obtained skills for providing a more professional information content and analyzing the economic reforms and various business processes taking place in the country. In accordance with the collegial decision, 11 journalists representing leading press and electronic mass media as well as radio and television: AzerTag, ANS TV, Azadlıg radio, Echo, 1 news, AzTV, ITV, Turan, ANN, Trend, Kaspi, have been selected for participation in the PASHA Bank and British Council project.

The employees of our Bank have also established PASHA Bank Rotary Club at their own expense where they pay regular visits to orphanages under their patronage and attempt to meet their needs. Rotary Club supports various initiatives of the orphans by means of investing in promising young talents.
