ANKARA – Anadolu Agency
Turkey’s state aid agency has given job-oriented training to 150 citizens of Uzbekistan, it said on May 28.
The Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA) gave the training in Istanbul in the areas of project management, entrepreneurship, engineering, and media for members of the Youth Alliance of Uzbekistan, students of the National University of Uzbekistan, members of the Tashkent State University of Economics, and employees of various institutions.
The training came courtesy of experts from TİKA, state-run Anadolu Agency, the Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council (TUBITAK), the Marmara Research Center, the Istanbul Chamber of Commodity Exchanges (TOBB) University, the Turkish Foreign Economic Relations Board (DEIK), the Independent Industrialists’ and Businessmen’s Association (MUSIAD), and English-language news channel TRT World.
Trainees also had the opportunity to get to know Turkey better and experience Istanbul’s historical heritage.
Mehmet Suüreyya Er, TİKA’s deputy chair, said at the graduation ceremony that TİKA is striving to develop cooperation between Turkey and Uzbekistan, which the countries’ presidents recently took to a strategic level.
Er said projects will continued to be carried out in Uzbekistan, particularly in the fields of education, health and culture.
Last month, on a three-day official visit, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said TİKA aims to invest $60 million in Uzbekistan.
