Address of the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Uzbekistan to the Republic of Korea Vitaliy Fen to the readers of The Korea Times on the occasion of the 29th anniversary of Uzbekistan's Independence and the 28th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Republic of Korea.
It is my great pleasure to address dear readers of The Korea Times on the occasion of the 29th anniversary of the Independence of the Republic of Uzbekistan and the 28th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Republic of Korea.
Over the past three and a half years, under the leadership of the distinguished President Shavkat Mirziyoyev, Uzbekistan has clearly seen a steady pace of development in all areas. An effective multilateral foreign policy has become an important factor in increasing export potential and expanding economic opportunities of Uzbekistan.
Relations are developing dynamically in the sphere of education. The universities of our country are cooperating with more than 30 scientific research institutions of South Korea. Centers of Korean language and culture are opened in a number of educational institutions. Additionally, the Korean language is taught at the Uzbek State University of World Languages, the Tashkent State Institute of Oriental Studies and the Samarkand State Institute of Foreign Languages. Successful activity of Inha University in Tashkent since 2014 is an eloquent example of the prospects of partnership in the field of education. At present, Uzbekistan has branches of six Korean universities that train highly qualified specialists in the field of information technology, engineering, medicine and logistics at the level of international standards.
