A Journalist’s Perspective: A Day on the University of Central Asia Construction Site
The University of Central Asia’s School of Professional and Continuing Education (UCA SPCE) graduation ceremony – by the way, its 10th – similar to previous years was celebrated in a festive and colourful fashion.  It would not be an exaggeration to say that the 200 graduates receiving their certificates from the UCA leadership (and it should be added that certificates were conferred not only to graduates, who came from GBAO, but also from the neighbouring provinces of Afghanistan) were glowing with happiness. Details of the ceremony is available in the UCA SPCE press release and, in the story prepared by our correspondent. As for me – I would like to relate my trip, together with a group of fellow journalists to the campus construction site in Khorog.
