Archil Prangishvili thanked the Turkish government and TIKA for cooperation and the gifts.

“Huge material translated to Georgian is ready for the educational process. These films are about animal husbandry, poultry, beekeeping, nutrition, etc. All of this serves the concept of sustainable development and is very important for us,” stated Prangishvili.
