The program of the visit was very informative – such events were included as the round table discussion in the Ministry of Education of Turkmenistan, also the Ministry of the Textile Industry, State Tourism Committee, Ministry of Construction and Architecture were visited. Our delegates also visited several prestigious secondary schools in Ashgabat, including the Pushkin Turkmenian-Russian Secondary School and 140th Secondary School. There it was possible to familiarize with the educational process in turkmenian schools and discuss important issues with schools’ administration.  More than that, our delegates also attended some technical universities in Ashgabat – International University of Oil and Gas and State Power Engineering Institute of Turkmenistan. During the meeting with the Universities’ administration the possible spheres of cooperation and signing the official documents on cooperation were discussed.

During the exhibition the University representatives also met a lot of  turkmenian school graduates and their parents. The graduates were interested in entering the University, got acquainted with the educational programs and the peculiarities of the future professions and specialties provided by our University.

It was a great joy to meet the GSTU students and graduates – Allayar Saparov, Venera Maksudova, Kamil Rasulkulov – who also attended the exhibition and assisted our representatives during the events. One of our students’ parents, Irina Bakhturova (mother of the chairman of the University international club “Friendship” Nastya Bakhturova), also attended the exhibition and met with our representatives.
