Storyline


Tajik students who have studied in China are experiencing the benefits of enhanced bilateral ties between China and Tajikistan.

Over 3,000 students from Tajikistan are currently studying in China. Many of them later return home to use their knowledge and experience from China in the workforce in Tajikistan.

Iskandar Ikrami is a Tajik citizen who studied in Beijing. Upon his return home, he opened two coffee shops in the capital Dushanbe.

"China is a big and rich cultural country, so that’s why I decided to learn the Chinese language, and then I discovered that there are a lot of opportunities even between Tajikistan and China, so that’s why I chose China as the country where I can learn their language and their culture,” said Ikrami.

Ikrami tried to create an atmosphere of cultural exchange within his coffee shops. The bookshelf in his coffee shop serves as a small library for customers to freely drop and take books as they like.

Many young Tajiks gather at this coffee shop not only to socialize but to work as well.

At one branch of Ikrami's coffee shop that is called Mazza gallery, artists are allowed to exhibit their works for free and the art is sold to customers without any commission for the cafe, all in the name of supporting young artists.

Farangis Isamova also studied in China, in the city of Dalian. She said she was most impressed with the attitude of Chinese citizens towards foreigners.

"I would really advise people to study as a student in China. It is an incredibly friendly country. If you compare it with the U.S. or Europe, Chinese people love foreigners so much. When I was in China, they want to meet you, to speak with you," said Isamova, a business woman.

As business cooperation between the two countries increases, many Chinese corporations are opting to open offices in Tajikistan. Tajiks who studied in China, experienced the culture and have learned the language, find that it opens doors for them during their future employments in Tajikistan.
