Read the latest from Caucasian Journal: West European experts to share best reforms experience with Caucasian readership

Read the latest articles from our sister project Caucasian Journal:

Do you care about improving quality of life in South Caucasus? Are you concerned about quality of education, air pollution, or road safety? Then you might want to know how the same problems have been solved in other countries. For those people who want to learn about successful reforms, Caucasian Journal in 2020 started to interview the most competent high-level practitioners from Western Europe.

For its interviews under program called “Best Nordic and Baltic Practice”, the Tbilisi-based multilingual journal selects topics, which are most relevant to the countries of South Caucasian region.

The first interview published last week focuses on Estonian school reform, and how Georgians and Azerbaijani compare internationally with students of same age.

“Why did we invite an Estonian expert? Because the Estonian teenagers rank the highest in Europe”, - reads the article in Caucasian Journal. “Indeed, according to recent OECD PISA worldwide student assessment results, the Estonian 15-year olds have the Europe’s highest scores in all disciplines.”

London Wine Beer & Spirits Competitions promoted globally

17.01.2020. Hvino News is proud to become the official media partner of London Wine Competition.

When the London Wine Competition launched in 2017 it was the first global event of its kind to not just judge the wines on their quality, but also how much they cost, and what they looked like. It was soon followed by similar events to cover beers and spirits to create a full drinks awards programme.

Here’s details on how to enter the separate competitions for this year and the added benefits for doing so with publicity, partnerships and coverage at major trade fairs in Europe and the US.

If you are supplying beers, wines or spirits to the on and off-trades then here’s why the separate London Competitions – with closing date for entries on January 31 – could be a new marketing opportunity for your brands, products and suppliers in key markets around the world.
