SUNY Delhi Provost John Nader recently served as a key speaker at the international conference, "Challenges and Opportunities of Sustainable Development in Eurasian Countries," in the cities of Tbilisi and Batumi in the country of Georgia.

According to a media release, the conference explored various aspects of the economic development process in the Eurasian region: economic policies in theory and practice; social and geopolitical issues; business development; educational issues; international trade; globalization; and cultural identity.

Nader was joined by historian Dr. Giuli Alasania, mother of Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, as a presenter at the conference. Presenters also came from Azerbaijan, Turkey, Iraq, Poland and the Czech Republic and included the rectors of International Black Sea University and Batumi State University.

Nader's appearance at the conference was the result of an ongoing partnership between the State University College of Technology at Delhi and Georgia. The two have formed an educational partnership to strengthen Tbilisi State University under a project supported by the United Nations Development Programme.

Through a Memorandum of Agreement, SUNY Delhi is collaborating with the Georgian university to provide an action plan that will help TSU become a more modern and democratic institution. The plan will also focus on programs that can help Georgia develop a skilled workforce.
