In addition, the interlocutors noted with satisfaction the positive dynamics in the development of contacts in the field of education and science, including the planned launch of a double degree program with one of the leading Italian university in the field of agriculture this fall.

At the same time, the Kazakh diplomat raised the issue of facilitating the EU visa regime for citizens of Kazakhstan. Expressing gratitude to the Italian side for its support in this matter, Roman Vassilenko noted that promoting dialogue and achieving specific measures in this area would help create favorable conditions for intensifying mutually beneficial interaction in all areas of cooperation.
