Putting it in aviation terms, I would call the next three months ahead - 'on the final'. This term applies to to the moment when you have finished aligning the aircraft with the runway, you have the runway in sight, you are on a proper glide slope and are cleared to land at the designated runway.
It is precisely what is going to happen, God willing, in these three crucial months starting today.
Final steps in completion of our development projects supported by the Polish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
Five different workshops and seminars for the staff of our health center, pre-school and primary school according to the development projects comprehensive plan - scheduled for the end of October and November.
