International House for Students in Moscow
An International House for Students will be built in Moscow in the nearest future. The project is being under development in the government of the capital and Yuri Luzhkov has already ordered the site to be found for the construction, reports Georgy Muradov, the head of the Department for International Relations of the capital, at the press-conference "On the prospects of development of international relations of Moscow in 2007" in the Information Center of the Moscow government.
Mr. Muradov insists that now the capital's government spends on lodging of foreign students twice and half as much money as for their education itself, what is ineffective draft of funds of the budget.
According to the head of the international relations of the capital, the program of enrolling the youth from CIS has been suspended due to the fact that there is no vacant accommodation and the construction of the International House for Students is to solve the problem.
