The delegation also included Elmira Zaripova, Minister of Labor, Employment and Social Protection of the Republic of Tatarstan, Fariddin Nasriyev, Consul General of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Kazan, and Davron Khidoyatov, Mayor of Chirchik.

According to Bekhzod Musaev, Alabuga Polytech has a well-organized educational system: «I have never seen such a project before! The system, functionality, routing and motivation for young people who have not yet decided on their future is so well built. Training is a grueling thing, but here everything is done in an interesting, interactive way. The symbiosis of practice and educational process is very competently built, - said the Minister. - I think it is very difficult to reproduce these things, because you have your own methodology and professionals. » Alabuga Polytech is an innovative project with a great future! We should not leave things as they are at present. We need to make our guys come to you to study, to build a vital career for themselves».
