Successful works of "Turkish National Agency" known as Turkish Ministry of EU Affairs Center for European Union (EU) Education and Youth Programme became the third among 33 other national agencies of member and candidacy countries of EU.
President of "Turkish National Agency", Musa Ceylan, said Friday, "Nearly 250 thousand citizens used our programmes and got to know Europe via them."
Ceylan told AA that educational programmes in Turkey had started 25 years ago however via the National Agency they took start in 2004. He said that in 8 years of time they achieved many of their targets and noted, "Among 33 countries, as the large size of our budget, brought us the 3rd and 4th places. This success does not just belong to the hard work of National Agency staff members but also it shows the success of our project leaders who took giant steps in order to speed up Turkey's EU membership process. I believe that this success will grow every other year."
