United States-Georgia Partnership Focuses on Building a Skilled Workforce for Economic Growth
A growing economy needs a skilled workforce–and a skilled workforce means better jobs and economic growth that benefits the population more broadly. Such goals are a focus of the United States – Georgia partnership.
Today, Ambassador Degnan attended the opening of the annual Skills Week Georgia to highlight the importance of technical and vocational skills for both personal and professional growth and for broader progress. This event is co-sponsored by USAID and the Government of Georgia to develop workforce skills aligned with Georgia’s economic and social needs.
The United States, in partnership with the private sector, government, and civil society, is investing in vocational education and skills development, creating a competitive Georgian workforce, generating employment opportunities, and bringing Georgia one step closer to its European aspirations. This is just one way we are working to achieve our goal of a Georgia that is a strong, prosperous, and equal partner.
