"Building kindergartens is a very important priority. Preschool education is part of our educational reform. I maintain close communication with our population in every region, and a lack of kindergartens is one of the main problems cited. I am convinced that this initiative will enable us to solve this issue within a few years," stated the Prime Minister.
