USUE visits Crimea to help implement culinary training programs

A delegation from Ural State Economic University traveled to the Crimea last week to help local universities create training and exchange programs in the culinary and service industries.

Led by USUE Rector M.V. Fedorov, the group also visited Sevastopol to implement Russian President Putin's proposal for integrated development of new recreational exchange opportunities.

"Unfortunately, the education sector in previous years [in Crimea and Sevastopol is] constantly underfunded, do not invest in technical equipment and the training of teachers," Fedorov said. "Our university has acquired unique expertise in the field of training for the hospitality industry, restaurant business, tourism and other areas of the service economy. We are ready to share this with our fellow countrymen... Crimea is the best holiday destination for Russians."

During the delegation's visits to both Crimea and Sevastopol, the parties also discussed the possibility of participation and training in the Eurasian Economic Youth Forum.
