MAI-Europe gives special attention to promoting and developing training programs in Europe. After the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, numerous Christian book and magazine publishers sprouted across the region. In response, MAI provided on-site training and consulting for Christian publishing staff in Poland, Bulgaria, Albania and other countries in the region. We remain actively engaged in publisher training and networking across Europe.
