As a part of his ongoing visit to the US, the Minister, Dimitri Shashkini, held a meeting with the Head of the Committee of Europe and Eurasia, Jean Schmidt.
During this meeting, Jean Schmidt positively assessed the ongoing developments in the Georgian field of education and emphasized that the undertaken reforms will add much to the development of the whole country. Such reforms as Georgia has undertaken--building modern schools and universities, including high-level educational institutions, such as the International Technological University in Batumi--are incredibly important to a country's success. Special attention is paid to the development of professional education that is oriented on the requirements of the labor market.
Jean Schmidt hopes that the building of democracy is a permanent process and Georgia will continue progress in its efforts.
