The delegation from Oriental University comprised notable figures such as Mr. Farrukh Kuvondikov, Vice-Rector; Mr. Farrukh Khudayberdiev, Head of the International Department; and Mr. Abbos Sattorov, a respected faculty member.

The day commenced with presentations from both universities, highlighting their academic strengths, research initiatives, and global outreach efforts. Following this, fruitful discussions ensued regarding the practicalities of establishing dual diploma programs, student and staff exchanges.

A significant milestone of the visit was the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) and a dual diploma agreement between the rectors of both universities. These agreements solidify the commitment of Oriental University and LBTU towards fostering academic collaboration and promoting cross-cultural exchanges.

The initiation of dual diploma programs holds immense promise for both institutions. It not only enriches the academic experiences of students but also strengthens the global competitiveness of the universities.
