Greetings to International Forum of Ministers of Education

June 10, 2024

Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the participants, organisers and guests of the second International Forum of Ministers of Education that kicked off in Kazan.

The message reads, in part:

“During the forum, which will once again be held under the slogan Shaping the Future, leaders of relevant ministries and departments, educators, and scientists from various countries will discuss a broad spectrum of pertinent topics. These will include enhancing the quality and accessibility of education, its role in addressing global challenges, and the integration of artificial intelligence technology in education.

We are steadfastly and unwaveringly committed to supporting guarantees ensuring every individual’s right to education tailored to their needs and interests. Our aim is to create conditions that enable the younger generation to fully realise their potential and talents. We actively promote these ideas through various integration platforms, notably during our country’s chairmanship in BRICS and the CIS this year.

In Russia, all children have equal access to free education. We take pride in the remarkable achievements of our schoolchildren and students at international Olympiads. Our leading universities rightfully hold decent positions in global rankings, and Russian diplomas are highly sought after by international students. We continuously focus on meeting the evolving needs of young people in the changing socio-economic landscape, instilling in them spiritual and moral values that foster the development of mature, responsible individuals, civic consciousness, and the reinforcement of the institution of family.

Our country is open to all-round cooperation in education and is ready to share its vast, often unparalleled experience, including the development of pedagogical and student exchanges, and participation in new joint projects.

I am confident that your forum will become a good platform for the exchange of experience and original, promising ideas, and for the development of constructive proposals for improving national education systems.”
