In addition, the interrelationships between faculty and staff will be expanded at the international level. A technopark will be created based on one of the Kazakh universities. The 20 scientific institutions have signed the agreements on cooperation. Currently, the Kazakh students are studying in Uzbekistan. The Uzbek students in Kazakhstan’s universities can enroll into special year courses. It is planned to create an information center for higher educational institutions of both countries. In general, following the results of the meeting, the countries highlighted the importance and prospects of bilateral cooperation in education and in accreditation of diplomas.
INOM MADJINOV, UZBEK MINISTER OF HIGHER AND SECONDARY SPECIAL EDUCATION:
- There are standard procedures of accreditation of diplomas. I don’t see such big problems there. Moreover, we are going to simplify all the procedure. I think the recognition of diplomas won’t be a problem for the employment of young people studying at the universities of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.
YERIK UTEMBAYEV, KAZAKH AMBASSADOR TO UZBEKISTAN:
Today, the minister has reached an agreement on developing the new trend. This allows students to be involved in this process. It will be implemented not only through regional cooperation, but also via the universities, the creation of new development centers and new technologies. In this regard, it is important to consider the joint scientific work and agreements reached to create the new areas that will be of interest in petrochemicals and agriculture in which both Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan has the experience.
