Student of the V.G.Timiryasov, winner of the Euroskills Graz 2021 championship Sogdiana Rustamova spoke with the President of Russia at a meeting with representatives of the Worldskills Russia movement. The President began the conversation by congratulating the participants of the WorldSkills Russia national team on winning the EuroSkills Graz 2021 European Professional Championship.
"Guys, we congratulate you on such a success. Your victory is, of course, a worthy result of hard work and evidence of a significant increase in the prestige of working specialties," the Head of state stressed. – I hope that the bright, brilliant performance of our team will be a good incentive for many people in our country to learn to master modern competencies, to take new professional heights."
The gold medalist of EuroSkills Graz 2021 in the competence of "Hotel Administration", a student of KIU Sagdiana Rustamova suggested to the President to scale the method of preparing the national team into the country's vocational education system. According to a member of the Russian team, this could help solve the problem of youth unemployment.
"This is an extremely important thing," Vladimir Putin replied to the proposal. – I mean what we are currently doing inside the country to develop domestic tourism. I think it's not a secret for you. After all, many of our compatriots go on vacation abroad precisely because there is not enough of a certain, in-demand level of service. This is the main reason why people travel far, for quite a lot of money, experience difficulties associated with the language barrier. If, with the help of young specialists like you, we were able to bring this work to a modern level worthy of our citizens, it would be extremely important both for the economy and for the social well-being of our country. I wish you success. Thank you very much."
