ATLANTA, GA (WALB) - College students in Georgia and Brazil will soon be able to take advantage of additional reciprocal educational and training opportunities, thanks to an agreement between the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) and São Paulo's technical education system, Centro Paula Souza (CPS).

 “International companies in Georgia look to our technical colleges every day to provide the skilled workforce they need to stay competitive,” said Commissioner Corbin. “This agreement with São Paulo's technical system is not only key to expanding TCSG's global outreach, it is an outstanding educational opportunity for students in both Georgia and Brazil. It encourages joint educational and economic development activities, exchange of staff and students and the exchange of visiting scholars to conduct research and professional development.”

“TCSG and CPS Colleges of Technology, through this partnership, have a myriad of opportunities for mutual cooperation on the field of professional higher education, which will effectively contribute to the development of both states,” said CPS Director Laura Laganá.

Students will engage in internships, language training, short-term cultural exchange trips for staff members and students, joint student projects and traditional semester exchanges. There will be increased cooperation between the educational agencies and local and regional chambers of commerce, municipal and provincial or state governmental agencies, hospitals, local and regional businesses, and manufacturing and industrial enterprises. 

Georgia has had representation in Brazil for more than two decades. More than 12,000 Georgians are employed by 40 Brazilian-owned businesses. 

Governor Nathan Deal is leading a delegation of state and local business leaders on an economic development mission in Brazil to establish
new business relationships, strengthen existing ties and promote Georgia as an excellent tourism destination and quality source for products and services. The Georgia delegation represents some of Georgia's greatest economic development assets in business, education, tourism, trade and workforce.
