Chris Chang, pro-vice-chancellor at the University of Portsmouth told the delegates that their part of the strategy is to establish global reach across the world particularly Central Asia as it has little engagement with this part of the world due to historical and cultural reasons. He added that they are now confident and looking forward to partnering with Central Asian countries particularly Tajikistan for better understanding and opportunities.
According to Khalifazoda, there is a huge demand for English training courses and the Tajikistan Government is ready to provide the supporting infrastructure to establish Training courses for English.
