Energy security is strengthened by activities in energy, communication, education, and other fields. Since the activities in the public sector deepen our relationship with the EU, public sector employees should learn about the relations between the EU and our country.

He added that the Institute for Development and Diplomacy trains professionals who will further develop relations with the EU within the framework of the trainings organized on the relevant topic.

Emphasizing the importance of cooperation between academic and civil society institutions, the ambassador pointed out that efforts in this direction are expanding yearly.
