«Kyrgyzstan will open the world through education,» the President Sooronbai Jeenbekov said, presenting «gold certificates» to the winners of the Nationwide testing.
The head of state congratulated the graduates on the successful completion of the school years and thanked the teachers and parents for their profound knowledge and good upbringing.
«I believe that you will bring much success to the country. Education is a priority for our country. The state must provide everyone with access to knowledge. We have neither oil nor gas. Only the educated and honest youth will be able to raise the population’s competitiveness and open the world,» said Sooronbai Jeenbekov.
The President noted that for 17 years since its introduction, the Nationwide testing had become one of the main levers in the fight against corruption in education.
