Georgian Prime Minister and President, as well as the Catholicos Patriarch of Georgia Ilia II have emphasised the role of the Georgian diaspora in the maintenance of the EU-Georgia visa free deal, “one of the biggest achievements of the country,” at the diaspora forum held in Tbilisi earlier today.

Georgian Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze thanked the Georgian diaspora for their “huge contribution and devotion” and requested them to also stand around the “national idea of education.

Human capital and an educated generation will lead us to a united and stronger Georgia,” Bakhtadze said.
