In his address to the forum participants, the head of the region touched upon the topic of vocational guidance and the choice of the future profession. According to Rustem Khamitov, this issue is relevant for the republic, since Bashkortostan is the youngest region in Volga Federal District from the point of view of an average age.
The head of the republic noted that teachers and mentors played a big role in the formation of the young man, the choice of the way forward.
"The world is constantly becoming more complicated. In this situation, a teacher should be beside a young man, a person who can correctly direct, define priorities", said Rustem Khamitov. "It is our concern to be teachers, mentors for our youth. Even financial support, all kinds of meetings, forums, venues will not play such a role as direct interaction, work with young people, staying next to them. "
