In December 2009, Uzbek President Islam Karimov signed a resolution "On the Organization of Activities of the Nagoya University's Representative Office in Tashkent."
Nagoya University was founded in 1939 on the base of Nagoya Medical College. In 1947, the college was renamed Nagoya University. In 2004, Nagoya University became a national higher educational institution.
Based on a report by the Uzbek Higher and Secondary Special Education Ministry, the Japanese International Cooperation Agency annually sends 20 Uzbeks to study at Japanese universities.
