The construction of the People-to-People Exchange Center not only contributes to the cooperation, exchanges, and common development of the two universities, but also carries the good wishes of the people of China and Kyrgyzstan for friendly exchanges and people-to-people bonds. MUC will fully support the construction of the people-to-people Exchange Center, to streamlin mutual learning and understanding between China and Kyrgyzstan, for the people-to-people exchanges between the two countries, for the good-neighborly and friendly cooperation between the two countries, for the high-quality development of the "Belt and Road Initiative", and to contribute to the building of a community of a shared future for mankind.



Ambassador Baktgulova expressed warm congratulations on the 70th anniversary of the founding of Minzu University of China in her speech. She spoke highly of the achievements made in political, economic, trade, and cultural exchanges found within the current bilateral relations between Kyrgyzstan and China. She pointed out that the ancient Silk Road connected the long history and splendid culture of China and Kyrgyzstan. Since Kyrgyzstan became independent, these connections have been consolidated. The field of education is the foundation of people-to-people exchanges and cooperation. The opening ceremony of the People-to-People Exchange Center jointly held by Osh National University and Minzu University of China today is of great significance. This is the first Kyrgyzstan-China people-to-people Exchange Center established in China by Kyrgyzstan.
