The Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) with support from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs organized the annual SITE Development Day conference, which is dedicated to discussing initiatives that can help create a more equal society and improve economic development.

SITE Development Day brought together distinguished academics, industry experts, gender and development economists, policy makers and guests interested in the topic. The conference speakers and panelists discussed how gender discrimination negatively impacts the productivity of low and middle-income economies, but also how reforms and specific initiatives can improve the situation. In addition, interesting historical perspectives were presented, discussing the origins of differences in gender norms.

On February 23, ISET Policy Institute (ISET-PI) hosted a final dissemination event under the “Strengthening Entrepreneurial Training in the Formal TVET System” project, implemented within the small grants scheme of the Millennium Challenge Account – Georgia, and funded by the US Millennium Challenge Corporation.

The project as a whole sought to bring entrepreneurship classes (and real-life Georgian business cases) to Georgian VET institutions. It was implemented by ISET-PI in partnership with the Entrepreneurship Development Agency (EDA), and the professional colleges Gantiadi (Gori) and Prestige (Telavi), as well as the Vocational Education and Training Center in Gldani.
