The Malaysian Taylor University is a leading university in Southeast Asia.

The institution trains specialists in tourism.

It plans to open a branch in Tashkent, the Uzbektourism National Company told Trend.
Vice President Charles Cheu said Taylor is interested in opening a branch in Tashkent, as highly qualified specialists are needed in Uzbekistan to develop the country as a tourist destination.

A Malaysian delegation visited the country and took part in talks with the Singapore Institute of Management Development's Tashkent branch, Tashkent State Economic University, Samarkand Institute of Economics and Service, and several other educational institutions.
