Education and Science Center to Be Built in Batumi

An education and science center will be built in Batumi as part of the government’s push to improve education across Georgia.

The center will include laboratories, conference halls, sports facilities, recreational space, a library, science museum, outdoor stadium, and student halls.

Speaking at a press conference for the project in Batumi today, the Prime Minister of Georgia Mamuka Bakhtadze announced that similar space will be created in every “corner of Georgia.”

Education has become a priority for the current government. The project comes after the government announced plans to increase teachers salaries by 150 lari per month from September 2019 earlier this week.

The government will provide “unprecedented support” for education in Georgia, said Bakhtadze. Indeed, they have pledged to invest one-quarter of the state budget into education.
