German Foreign Minister: Education is a true commodity

"Education plays the central role in globalization," said German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle on June 26 at the Deutsche Welle Global Media Forum in Bonn.

"The world's true commodity is not under our feet anymore - it's between our ears. It is creativity and knowledge - and they are the result of education and training. This is why the competition between educational systems will determine the leading societies and nations of the future," stressed Westerwelle.
