Chairman of the Board – Rector of the Al–Farabi Kazakh National University Zhanseit Tuimebayev met with the Consul General of South Korea in Almaty Park Nae Chon. During the meeting, the parties voiced a number of specific proposals aimed at further expanding the partnership. 

At the meeting, the rector of the university told the guest of honor about the achievements and future plans of KazNU. In his speech, Zhanseit Tuimebayev announced his proposals for increasing cooperation:

"Currently, about 26 thousand students study at our educational institution, 3 thousand of which are foreigners, and among them there is talented youth of the Republic of Korea. Today Al-Farabi Kazakh National University maintains close relations with 45 universities of Korea. Professors pay special visit to our university and give lectures. In the future, it is important to develop non-stop these areas of activity, and constantly build up the partnership. In this context, I have a number of specific recommendations. Firstly, it is necessary to jointly hold scientific conferences and meetings. Secondly, I propose to publish books about South Korea in Kazakh and respectively about Kazakhstan in Korean. The last but not least is to attract investors from Korea to innovative projects in our educational institution. I am sure that these initiatives will become a great incentive for the development of cooperation in the field of education and science between Kazakhstan and South Korea," Zhanseit Tuimebayev stated.


In turn, the Consul General thanked the rector of the University for the warm welcome. Also in his speech, the guest of honor noted that he supports these initiatives.


"Al-Farabi KazNU is a leading university in Kazakhstan. In the future, we plan to maintain close relations with KazNU and are ready to further build up the partnership," Park Nae-Chon announced.


At the end of the meeting, the parties agreed on the systematic implementation of these initiatives and exchanged memorable gifts.
