Currently, Cuban students and teachers have the opportunity to take part in the scientific and practical life of KIU, and our university staff have the opportunity to publish their work in the scientific journals of the partner university.
During the current visit, negotiations were held on the implementation of educational programs in the field of learning Russian as a foreign language, training for tourism and quality management, as well as in the field of inclusive education and business projects. It should be noted that the Republic of Cuba is a strategic partner of Russia in the field of tourism. Russia is in second place in terms of the influx of tourists to the Republic of Cuba and relations between the two countries are developing rapidly.
