USUE names Patricio Chavez Zavala honorary professor

The Academic Council of the Ural State University of Economics named Patricio Chavez Zavala the university's newest honorary professor.

Zavala came to USUE last May as the head of the Latin American delegation to the university's Eurasian Economic Youth Forum. Since then, Zavala has been organizing Russian-Latin American exchange programs, which provide students from both parts of the world unique learning opportunities in the area of economics.

Through Zavala's efforts, five Ecuadorian students will study at USUE during the 2013-2014 school year.

Aside from his academic work, Zavala is currently the ambassador of Ecuador to Russia, as well as Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Azerbaijan.
