The Founder of Peace and National Unity, Leader of the Nation, President of the Republic of Tajikistan, Your Excellency Emomali Rahmon,
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of UCA, Dr. Shamsh Kassim-Lakha,
My name is Zainab, and I am from Kyrgyzstan.
People of Kyrgyzstan and people of Tajikistan have historically been strongly related, and according to a legend Manas’ mother Khanake was Tajik. We are proud of it. Besides that, we are the closest neighbour of Tajikistan and our countries have been excellent neighbours.
I am happy that I am a Preparatory Programme student of Economics department. Now, I consider myself a full member of UCA and it is my pleasure to welcome all of you.
Khush omaded! Welcome! Kosh Kelinizder!
Your Excellency, it is well known that our countries are mountainous countries and those mountains support a mutually beneficial cooperation. Therefore, we know that in the future we will use our knowledge and experience to enhance this cooperation.
Your Excellency has declared 2018 as the Year of tourism and folk-crafts. This initiative is a good opportunity for development of tourism which we hope will become a focus of the economies of our countries.
I will work hard, I will do my best to become a qualified specialist in Economics and apply it for the benefit of my country and for the cooperation between central Asian countries.
Today on this historical day, I want to sincerely thank your Excellency, and His Highness The Aga Khan for allowing me to witness the academic potential of my classmates and their passion for knowledge. I also want to express my gratitude for allowing us students to create opportunities in these mountains of Central Asia.
Tashakkur, Jon Rahmat
