In his interview to our Media Center, Governor Wang also said,
“There are big prospects to widen cooperation between China and Kazan University. There are now nearly a thousand Chinese students here. I think the number will grow in the future. This growth will be a good foundation for the strengthening of traditional friendship between China and Russia; young people and the future of our countries. Kazan University will be especially attractive to Chinese students in its priority development areas.”
