As you know, schools with the Azerbaijani language are acting in Georgia and exhange of books is carried out by Azerbaijan regularly. Student exchange is increasing from year to year.

One more direction has especially been paid attention today and an agreement has been reached. Relevant bodies have agreed on presentation of a single tourism route. It will cause toursim influx from the third countries. We will see fruit of the activity in this direction after elimination of restrictions regarding pandemic", noted J. Bayramov.
