Ambassador Kelly C. Degnan gave opening remarks at the annual Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Awards Ceremony. This event highlights the important work vocational schools do to help build Georgia’s human capital and establish a workforce necessary to drive the country’s economic growth.

Originally established by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and currently administered by the Millennium Foundation, the TVET Awards Ceremony is a part of the U.S. Government’s active support of the development of vocational education in Georgia. Since 2017, the TVET Awards Ceremony has supported the transformation of the TVET sector in order to provide Georgians of all ages and backgrounds with the skills needed to succeed.
