On December 14, the Belarusian National Technical University hosted the grand opening of the Center for Uzbek Culture and Education at BNTU.

The Belarusian National Technical University actively cooperates with higher education institutions of Uzbekistan. Thus, in order to improve the training of highly qualified engineering and technical personnel for the industries of Uzbekistan, expand international cooperation in the field of higher education, a joint Belarusian-Uzbek Inter-sectoral Institute of Applied Technical Qualifications was established in Tashkent by the decision of the President of Uzbekistan in 2019. Based on the decision of the BNTU Council, a joint Belarusian-Uzbek Interdisciplinary Institute of Applied Technical Qualifications was established in the BNTU structure in March 2020.

Honorary guests of the opening ceremony were Honorary Professor of BNTU, Rector of Tashkent State Technical University named after Islam Karimov (TSTU) Sadritdin Turabdzhanov and Honorary Professor of BNTU, Vice-Rector for International Relations of TSTU Ulugbek Mannanov.

As Sadritdin Turabdzhanov noted, the opening of the center is a great holiday. "Here, in the center, Belarusian students will be able to get acquainted with our culture, history, and the successes of our higher education. The Center of Uzbek Culture and Education at BNTU will strengthen the friendship of our youth and the friendship of our peoples," he said.

The continuation of the holiday was a concert program, which included creative performances by the folk song ensemble "Kahanachka" of the BNTU Department of Cultural Affairs and female students from Uzbekistan.

The opening of the Uzbek Culture and Education Center at BNTU has not only become an additional step in deepening cooperation in the cultural and humanitarian sphere, but will also contribute to the development and strengthening of bilateral relations between higher education institutions of the Republic of Uzbekistan and BNTU.
