Ambassador Degnan Visits Samtskhe Javakheti

This week Ambassador Degnan returned to the beautiful Samtskhe-Javakheti region of Georgia. The official visit started with the Ambassador’s meeting with Governor Besik Amiranashvili to discuss ongoing partnerships and future opportunities for cooperation. 

Ambassador Degnan also officially unveiled the newest addition to our network of American Spaces—the Akhalkalaki American Shelf—making for 17 brick-and-mortar spaces for engagement for Georgians across the country.  This opening is the result of local advocacy, when, during Ambassador Degnan’s last trip, educators requested United States support.
