“We need to encourage young people in all countries to exchange experiences in the field of education,” said the US Ambassador to Uzbekistan Pamela Spratlen on the occasion of celebration of International Education Week.

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the US State Department and the Department of Education to attract future leaders from other countries to learn, educate and share experiences in the United States. On this occasion, the American Embassy in Tashkent spearheaded events during the entire week dedicated to international education, to provide comprehensive information for students about opportunities to participate in international educational programs. About 50 thousand participants annually proceed to exchange programs funded by the United States government agencies, foundations and corporations. International education, according to Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Evan Ryan, helps to achieve success in today’s global economy and create links that enhance international understanding and security.

Each year, the celebration of the Week is timed with the release of the report Open Doors, which is published by the Institute of International Education in partnership with the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State.

The report published this year states that in the 2015-2016 academic year, the number of students from Uzbekistan grew to 530 and increased by 7.9%. In general, the number of foreign students in the United States for the first time exceeded one million, an increase of 7% compared to the previous year. The largest percentage falls on China and India – almost 47% of the total number of foreign students.

The new report confirms that the United States continues to be the main destination for the attainment of higher education. In this regard, President and CEO of the Institute of International Education Allan Goodman said that “American colleges and universities offer basic education, and students reveal to us the world that we share. The wider we open the doors to other cultures, the better it will be for our country.”
