The Minister of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Georgia - Mikheil Chkhenkeli met with the employees of the Ministry on his first working day and introduced them with the future plans and overall goals of the Ministry.
According to the minister, the strategic priority of the government is education and science, so the complex reform of education will continue at an even faster pace. During the meeting, Mikheil Chkhenkeli talked about the importance of culture and sport as well.
Mikheil Chkhenkeli: “Georgia is a country that is known worldwide for its science, culture and sport. Sport and a healthy lifestyle in general is directly related to issues amongst the young generation of this country. Promoting mass sport is extremely important for schools and universities. Consequently, the inclusion of sports in the education system and the popularization of a healthy lifestyle remains a priority for us. As for culture - this is of most particular importance to Georgia, and therefore my position is that the Ministry of Culture should exist as a separate entity. The team is being consulted on this issue. ”
During the meeting with the staff, Mikheil Chkhenkeli emphasized that he was happy to work with a professional team once again and expressed his wish for less bureaucracy, thus leaving more room for creativity and teamwork in the process.
