UWC President extends greetings to IV Congress of the International Institute for Education, Culture and Diaspora Relations


 


On 23 August 2013, Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) President Eugene Czolij extended greetings to the participants of the IV Congress of the International Institute for Education, Culture and Diaspora Relations (IIEC), at the National University Lviv Polytechnic, dedicated to fostering a better understanding of the global Ukrainian perspective.


 


This year’s topics at the IIEC Congress, co-organized by the UWC, included the development of Ukrainian education, arts and culture, issues related to Ukraine’s labour migration and Taras Shevchenko themes.


 


“I believe that today’s IIEC Congress will contribute to the further consolidation of Ukrainians worldwide and will fortify you in resolving issues critical to strengthening the role of Ukraine in the international arena,” stated Eugene Czolij.


 


On behalf of the UWC, Eugene Czolij also expressed gratitude to the IIEC and specifically, to its Director Iryna Kluchkovska, for their hard work, dedication and cooperation in helping with the organization of the X Ukrainian World Congress.
