The Chairman of the Board of Archimedes Foundation, Mr Rait Toompere stresses that a long-term friendly cooperation between Georgia and Estonia is a great support to the education field. “In today`s world the quality of international relations is one of the key points for building a strong education sector. People, who have an opportunity to study or work in a new environment, are basically bound to grow and develop as individuals and as citizens. Estonian Days in Georgia help Estonia to better the existing strong friendship with Georgia, find new ideas and people and move together towards a stronger education.”
