On 5 May Minister of State Michael Roth welcomed a delegation from the Republic of Moldova to Berlin. Headed by Deputy Minister of Education Loretta Handrabura, a group of eight politicians and association representatives learned about the German education system within the context of the Guest Programme of the Federal Republic of Germany. The focus was on the dual training system.
Minister of State for Europe Roth emphasised the close and intensive exchange between Germany and the Republic of Moldova, which signed an association agreement with the European Union last year. “One of the reasons why Europe is a success story is because we can learn from and with one another. Our dual vocational training system, which combines school with practical work experience, has proved its worth over the past decades and attracts considerable interest throughout the world. I am delighted that we are able to offer the Republic of Moldova concrete assistance also in this area.”
