This includes efforts to improve teaching methods across various disciplines, preserve the integrity of the language, and support its widespread use.

The collaboration also involves a diverse range of activities. These include directing a joint study on the status of the Arabic language in Uzbekistan, authoring bilingual dictionaries (Arabic-Uzbek), analyzing, indexing, archiving, and preserving Arabic manuscripts, organizing the Arabic Language Month, and celebrating World Arabic Language Day.
