Education and Science Minister Ilga Suplinska (New Conservative Party) on November 8 in Brussels will sign a protocol of intention on automatic recognition of diploma among the Baltic and Benelux countries (Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg).

The ministers voice resolution and readiness to prepare a joint agreement on automatic recognition of higher education diploma among countries of both regions.
