SEOUL, December 19 (Itar-Tass) ——The issues of the setting up in Bashkortostan of e-education and e-government systems were discussed here, the Republic’s president Rustem Khamitov told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday in an interview on the results of his two-day visit to South Korea.
‘We have come to Seoul to establish contacts on introducing an e-government and e-education - the sphere, in which the Republic of Korea is one of the world leaders. We would like to engage in e-education and e-government as we consider the theme has very good prospects. This will help to attract investors in the future and to set up new info- and industrial parks,” Khamitov stated.
Over the results of the talks a number of agreements in the South Korean ministry of education, science and technology, as well as in ministry of knowledge economy have been reached concerning the inking of treaties on e-education and e-government systems development.
“Over the results of the meeting with Samsung Electronics’ leadership we’ve come to a decision that a large “paratroopers’” group of experts will “land’ in Ufa in January 2013 to assist in working in such a direction as an e-government. This will encompass the software and hardware, including the computers. If Samsung Electronics understands that the potential of the republic’s market is a vast one, we’ll discuss the issue of construction of an enterprise to produce such hardware for the Russian needs and perhaps to meet the demand of South-Asian states as well”, Khamitov said.
In his words a group of experts will come to Ufa in February 2013 to help shape and develop e-education, to set up an e-university, special structures and training centers in the republic.
The development of e-education encompasses not only schools and higher educational establishments, but also issues of a higher level of proficiency, getting a second education, setting up various training courses and even teaching pensioners to use computers and raising their skills level.
“We’ll conclude contracts and are willing to work for a long time trying to adopt everything positive the Koreans have”.
“An agreement with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of South Korea has been reached on holding a presentation of Bashkortostan’s investment potential in Seoul in September-October 2013”, Khamitov said.
