The conversation was about strengthening cooperation in education, science, and youth between fellowship and observer countries in bilateral and multilateral formats.

Tariel Gugava provided detailed information to the delegation’s representatives about the Portuguese Language Center named after Luish Kamoesh at Tbilisi State University, which is named after Ivane Javakhishvili. 

The center, which has been functioning since 2012, aims to spread Portuguese language education and luzophone culture. It has successfully facilitated cultural exchange and language learning, contributing to the strengthening of ties between Georgia and CPLP countries.

According to the Deputy Minister, the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth is poised to help establish direct links between Georgian higher education institutions and universities of CPLP countries. This initiative holds great promise, potentially opening up new avenues for academic and cultural exchange.

At the end of the meeting, Zakaria and Costa introduced Tariel Gugava to an exciting initiative. They proposed the establishment of a portal for scientific, research, higher and general education within the CPLP. This portal would serve as a platform for knowledge exchange, collaborative research, and academic networking. 

In his turn, the deputy minister expressed his full support for the Portuguese side in this case, recognizing the potential of this initiative to enhance cooperation in education and science.
