The lecturers talked about the problems of young people in the country, mainly related to employment. By noting the lack of relationship between the country’s education system and the labor market, and lack of necessary competencies and qualifications among university graduates, the lecturers emphasized that Kyrgyzstan should focus on the economic growth model based on competencies and knowledge. The question of the lack of students’ awareness on the situation in the labor market, vague employment, and lack of social support for young professionals raised lively discussion in the classroom.
