fruitful discussion and the main concerns raised, in addition to the constructive ideas emerging from various academic, professional, political and cultural backgrounds, I am certain that Wise will lead to opening wide horizons for developing quality education and expanding its reach. I look forward to Wise being engaged more and more in offering alternatives and solutions to the main education problems and challenges we are facing.'
