My name is Baikurmanov Bauyrzhan, I am from Kazakhstan. I graduated and received a bachelor’s and master’s degree from L.N. Gumilyov Eurasian National University (ENU) with a degree in Oriental studies (Japanese studies), and this new academic year I continued my studies at the University of Tsukuba.

During my studies in Kazakhstan, I wrote my papers on the topic of Japan’s experience in the areas of economic security and anti-crisis measures in the economy, and how Japanese experience can be integrated into the system of Kazakhstan. In this regard, I decided to continue working in this field and plan to explore the socio-economic stability of the youth of Kazakhstan, as this is the main key to the stabilization and further development of the country’s economy.

My choice fell on the University of Tsukuba for a reason, during my studies in Kazakhstan I took part in academic mobility programs and during this time I studied at this university in 2019 and 2022, for a total of one year. During my exchange studies, I realized that the University of Tsukuba and the Special Program in Japanese and Eurasian Studies provides a wide range of courses, opportunities for obtaining valuable knowledge and is a favorable environment for writing research work. I am grateful to the Nippon Foundation for providing this opportunity.
