Local institutions of higher learning are reckoned among the leaders in Russian education. They train specialists in more than 300 qualifications, 60 of which are connected with priority areas of modernization and technological development of the country. About 50 percent of students come from other towns and nine percent are citizens of 30 foreign states.
While in Tomsk, Putin will also meet with the directors of a number of major enterprises of the region, such as the Tomskneftekhim (petrochemistiry), the Siberian Chemical Complex, the Vostok Gazprom (gas industry, East), the Sibkabel (cables), the Siberian Agrarian Company, etc.
