Dr. Indira Satarkulova, the Acting Director of the Academy, welcomed the participants, highlighting the significance of Summer School and giving some tips to succeed in studies, as well as introducing the OSCE Academy activities and opportunities for students. Dr. Eriona Çela, a Lecturer, also greeted the participants with warm words. Dr. Çela emphasized that learning requires skills, but it also requires hard work. Colin McCullough, Senior Planning and Co-ordination Officer, OSCE Programme Office in Bishkek, noted, "There are 57 countries coming together to give you this opportunity, and we see it as an investment. We are counting on you, and we believe in you."
