A Memorandum was signed between the Ministry of Education and Science of RA and the Ministry of Education and Science of Georgia by the two Ministers. Minister L. Mkrtchyan thanked his Georgian counterpart for the visit to Armenia and noted that after the appointment of Aleksandre Jejevala as a Minister, dramatic changes took place in the bilateral relations in general, middle and higher education sectors. “Our countries share common educational reforms and there is a substantial potential to further not only bilateral relations, but also to develop relations with Europe, as we have major co-implemented projects such as Horizon 2020 and Bologna process.

And the first target will be aimed at improving the quality of the Armenian schools and the teaching programme of the Armenian language”, mentioned the Georgian Minister.
According to the Memorandum, the parties undertake to develop direct cooperation in higher, scientific and research institutions of the two countries, to promote the exchange of information on the structure of the education systems, content and forms of organization.
