Why did you choose this topic for your research?
Kazakhstan is a relatively developing country. One of the keyways to embed development is by focusing on international trade and improving export performance. This is because, for emerging economies, export promotion appears to be one way forward. In addition, an analysis of the literature on export trade and economic growth in developing countries shows a positive relationship.
Kazakhstan is a country with rich resources such as grain, textiles, fats and oils. Grain is one of the country's oldest major traditional export commodities and has stood the test of time as a major source of foreign exchange. Grain marketing in the Kazakh economy is very complex and is dominated by small and medium-sized enterprises.
In addition, the benefits of exports to the economy should not be underestimated. Exports are a source of foreign exchange, economic growth, reduce unemployment and stimulate production. Exports also allow a country to maximize its competitive advantage by expanding its existing market and creating new opportunities.

Why did you choose Narxoz University?
I got all my bachelor's and master's degrees from Narxoz University. There are many advantages in studying at our university, namely valuable knowledge. All university professors are highly qualified specialists in their field, able to provide information and objectively evaluate. As part of academic mobility, I studied twice at foreign universities, which made me think about entering our university.

Why did you choose this topic for research?
Human resource management in an economic turbulence is today a very important problem. Human resources are a set of different qualities of people that determine their ability to work to produce spiritual and material goods and are a general indicator of the development of social production.
The Covid-19 pandemic and accompanying regulations aimed at preventing the spread of the virus have affected all organizations regardless of size and type, as well as employees and managers. Lack of demand, termination of contracts and orders, postponement, or cancellation of business trips and, as a result, higher prices for raw materials led to a decrease in the company's income. However, in some cases, after the lockdown, demand for appliances, food delivery service and online shopping increased.
The crisis has led to changes in working hours, jobs, and the welfare of employees in general. Thus, the support of HRMs has played an important role in helping staff adapt to new norms and contribute to the transition process.
Therefore, this study will seek to examine organizational support for HRM with their initiatives during economic turbulence with taking into account changes in work, work schedule and workplaces.

While studying and working at SDU, I heard a lot from my colleagues about Narxoz University, that the research base of the university is very strong, and that Narxoz provides a good opportunity to develop oneself in the research field, both various PhD programs and the faculty.

Different countries deal with this process differently. Only 10% of all children with disabilities in the world go to school, and only 5% receive primary education. Therefore, I want to consider how successfully our country is introducing inclusion in schools and what problems it faces.
