Who is concerned?

  

There are no particularly strategic countries for the international cooperation in vocational education sector. However, in the framework of the Leonardo da Vinci mobility projects 1998-1999 and 2000-2006, Latvia most actively has cooperated with Germany – in 2000-2006, 41% of the projects chose for partnership some institution in Germany (16% in Finland, 8% in Sweden, 6% in United Kingdom, 5% in Italy, 5% in France and 16% in other countries).
