During the meeting, the delegates of the People's Republic of China shared their impressions of their staying in the Bashkir capital. In their opinion, an important contribution to the creation of conditions for the harmonious dialogue without a doubt was made by Bashkir State Pedagogical University. Thus, according to the Deputy Director of International Cooperation Department of the Ministry of Education of China Yu Jihai, he was inspired with the idea of establishing a centre of Chinese culture at the Institute of philological education and intercultural communication in Ufa.

Under the agreement, the exchange of students between universities will begin in 2015, and by that time Russian students should learn Chinese language.
