Not less important is the social side of our decision. In particular, a new profession will be available for at every layer of our society. We expect a great interest from small income citizens.

“I want to talk about this unique kitchen equipment that, we gave today to Agrarian University free of charge. At one time, it was purchased for Presidential Palace. For me it was very important, when the President approved the idea to give this kitchen equipment to the culinary school. The main cause for this decision, was that especially our citizens, who have small income, including refugees, at the expense of the state could get a new profession, afterwards use this knowledge for the benefit of his family and country,-“Vera Kobalia said.
