The President of Georgia: "Development of the Public Administration Is Impossible Without a Constant Increase of Qualification and Improvement of Education System"Thursday, 23 February 2017 16:59
The President of Georgia, H.E. Giorgi Margvelashvili has opened the international conference "Good Governance – Promoting Democratic Values and Practices through Education”.
The President has addressed the audience, thanked the Georgian Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA) for organizing the conference, and noted that in the process of implementing a new law on the public service, Georgian people will face new challenges.
If the standards of the public service do not develop, the public service and the state fail to overcome the challenges of the society and the voters.
According to the President, in this regard, a constant increase of the public service standards is crucial, both for the professional qualification and the ethics. Implementation of the above is impossible without a constant increase of qualification and improvement of education system.
“Increase of qualification and improvement of education system should co-occur naturally with the public service, a system being in a constant motion, so that the public service remains in motion and continues a successful operation.
This is a difficult challenge, facing every government which wants to respond to the voters’ confidence", - stated the President.
As the President pointed out at the opening, Georgia has a noticeable success in terms of the public administration which we share with our friends and partners; however, the most important is our readiness to acquire a new knowledge.
The public service should simultaneously be successful and highly qualified, carrying high moral values.
The speeches at the conference were also delivered by the Ambassador of the United States to Georgia Mr. Ian Kelly, the Ambassador of the European Union to Georgia Mr. Janos Herman, the Ambassador of Italy to Georgia Mr. Antonio Enrico Bartoli, and the Rector of GIPA Mrs. Maka Ioseliani.
The main attention was drawn to the problems facing the countries of South Caucasus and Black Sea region, namely Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Ukraine.
The participants of the conference have discussed both theoretical and practical approaches of successful governance mechanisms and reinforcement of the democratic institutions, within the framework of the public administration reform.
The participants have also focused on enhancing the skills of public servants and implementation of ethical standards in the public service through promoting public governance courses and professional programs.
The conference was also attended by the Head of the Administration of the President of Georgia Mr. Giorgi Abashishvili, the Secretary of the National Security Council Mr. Davit Rakviashvili and the advisors to the President.
