On 8-10 June, the European Union (EU) project “Promoting professional housing management in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan” (PROMHOUSE) hosted an experience exchange event between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan on housing management for representatives of management and service companies as well as representatives of several government departments, local authorities and educational institutions. Almaty was visited by 15 specialists from housing and communal services in Uzbekistan.

The discussions at the three round tables focused on modern models for maintenance and management of multi-apartment buildings, and the role and perspectives of cooperation between companies, professional associations and vocational colleges in the training of professionals.

The participants visited the management company “FMG group”, inspected the residential complexes “Miras park” and “AFD Plaza” and were introduced to the practice of maintenance of multi-apartment houses. The Almaty Construction and Technical College organised an open day for the Uzbek specialists. They learned about the facilities and opportunities for training in various professions, including the ‘house master’. The college is the only one so far in Kazakhstan to be licensed for training house masters. Bekturgan Akhmetov, the principal of the college, pointed out the important role of the EU project PROMOHOUSE in obtaining the license. The teaching staff of the college expressed their gratitude for the educational programmes developed in the framework of the EU project.
