Following his official visits in the Moldovan capital Chisinau, Bozdag visited the local Orizont Turkish School. The deputy PM was briefed on the school by the Orizont Schools General Manager Turgay Sen and the principal Mehmet Ali Yazar.

In his statements, “The Turkish schools -be it in Moldova or elsewhere in Europe, Africa, Asia, Middle East and Balkans- have been Turkeys’ source of pride. They have achieved great success,” the deputy PM said.

He went on to say the Turkish schools have successfully presented a brand new education model in practice to the world. They also exemplified how people can get to know each other and collaborate, and how cooperation and collective effort can lead to great success. “Therefore, we are proud of these schools.”

“The schools in Moldova have about 1,400 students and are teaching 4 different languages. They offer Turkish, English, Romanian and Russian courses. The students do not need to learn another language to study in Turkey.” He further said the schools have a proven track record of success.
