Bulgarian PM: College Education Is State of Mind
College education is not a quantity of knowledge, but a state of mind, says Bulgarian Prime Minister, Plamen Oresharski.
The PM addressed students from the University for National and World Economy in Sofia on the occasion of the official start of the academic year.
He urged them to never forget that the horizon of knowledge is always open for them.
"Four years of studies only seem to be a long period of time, so use them fully and wisely. Read to learn, but do not forget to build the state of mind, the way you think. Knowledge is just a window through which you must look at the economy with your own eyes, Oresharski stated, stressing economy majors were going to become the future leaders of Bulgaria.
Upon arriving at the school, he was met by a group of 15 antigovernment protesters who hissed and shouted resignation, and demanded he gives an answer who has nominated controversial media mogul and lawmaker Delyan Peevski for Chief of the State Agency for National Security, DANS.
This nomination, though later withdrawn, sparked the record 3-months long protest rallies in the country.
