"We need to develop academic mobility and create conditions for a stronger intercultural dialogue among our students," said Tokayev.

There was also a proposal to form a common educational space for higher education institutions by establishing a common network of universities in 2023. The purpose is to enable students to learn Turkic languages and get acquainted with each other's history and culture.
