International Exhibition of Modern Food Production Technologies Held in Turkmenistan

An International Exhibition of Modern Food Production Technologies took place at the Expo Centre of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the country. Thanks to effective measures aimed at the intensive development of the agri-food sector and comprehensive government support for domestic agricultural producers, significant progress has been achieved in this sphere. As part of the implementation of long-term government programmes, large investments are directed towards the modernisation and technical and technological re-equipment of all sectors of the agro-industrial complex.

Investment as a Driving Force of Economy

The key objective of the investment strategy of the esteemed President Serdar Berdimuhamedov is to attract financial investments in fixed assets and direct them to innovation, the manufacturing of value-added products and the areas that ensure the further socioeconomic development of the country. Macroeconomic indicators vividly demonstrate that Turkmenistan is an economically stable country that abides by the basic principles of neutrality, good neighbourly relations and respect for territorial integrity. These main pillars of our foreign economic policy help the country, among other things, maintain economic stability. World practice shows that investment is the key driver of economic prosperity. Turkmenistan adopted the Programme “Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State: The National Programme of the Socioeconomic Development of Turkmenistan in 2022–2052” setting forth the investing objectives to ensure the progressive and long-term development of all segments of the national economy. Its main aspects include the expansion of sectors to attract private capital, to enhance investor protection, to liberalise foreign trade and others.

Entrepreneurship is the Road to Prosperity

Today it is difficult to imagine the economy of Turkmenistan without private business. The non-state sector plays a significant role in modernising and diversifying sectors of the national economy, increasing the volume and expanding the range of high-quality and competitive products, ensuring food abundance and developing the country’s export potential, the respected President Serdar Berdimuhamedov emphasises. The potential of small and medium-sized businesses in Turkmenistan is evidenced by the fact that the share of the non-state sector of the economy, excluding the fuel and energy complex, in the country’s GDP is steadily increasing and has reached 70 per cent, and the private sector employs more than half of the employed population. Based on the strategic objectives of the Programme of the President of Turkmenistan of the socioeconomic development of the country in 2022–2028 and the National Programme of the President of Turkmenistan of transforming the social and living conditions of the population of villages, settlements, etrap towns and etrap centres for the period until 2028, the country’s entrepreneurs continue to consistently work to increase the manufacture of import-substituting and export-oriented products.


After gaining independence, our country completely reorganised financial relations. These relations facilitated accelerated production growth in market conditions. As a result, GDP is now growing at its fastest rate. During the years of independence, a number of laws and regulations on financial relations at enterprises have been adopted. For example, the laws on business, entrepreneurship, joint stock companies, taxes and property and many other laws are implemented. These laws are updated regularly to meet the demands of modern market economy. In this regard, the Law On Youth State Policy, which sets forth the legal framework, goals, objectives, principles, main areas, measures and approaches to the implementation of the state youth policy in Turkmenistan, was adopted. The general provisions of the Constitution envisage creating conditions conducive to research, innovation and entrepreneurial activities of citizens of Turkmenistan aged 14 to 30 years, protecting the life of young people and building life supporting infrastructure.

Partnership for progress

At a time of globalisation, achieving the effective implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals is impossible without ensuring partnership. Goal 17 “Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development”, aims to strengthen the means of the implementation and to stir up the work within the framework the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development. Turkmenistan is an active participant in international processes and consistently builds relationships with all countries, based on the principles of equality, friendship, good neighbourliness and mutual benefit. In accordance with the objectives of the Programme “Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State: The National Programme of the Socioeconomic Development of Turkmenistan in 2022–2052” and the Programme of the President of Turkmenistan of the Socioeconomic Development of the Country in 2022–2028, the neutral policy of Turkmenistan as a universal strategically important tool is aimed at further developing cooperation with world and regional states and with authoritative international organisations.

Basis for economic development

Thanks to the national programmes of the socioeconomic development of Turkmenistan, the country has achieved significant results in its industrial advancement. The prosperous state has been created in accordance with the industrial policy pursued by the esteemed President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, economic reforms and measures taken to modernise, to technically and technologically re-equip and to stimulate the growth of all industries. Today, special attention is paid to the development of industry. This is due to the fact that this segment of the national economy has a significant potential. The experience of developed countries shows that it is thanks to the active development of industry that it is possible to achieve high economic growth and to increase the competitiveness of the economy. A significant impetus for industrial development was the adoption of the National Programme of the Socioeconomic Development of Turkmenistan in 2022–2052 and the Programme of the President of Turkmenistan of the socioeconomic development of the country in 2022–2028, focused on solving the strategic tasks of developing the industrial sector of the economy, related to accelerating the processes of the diversification of the oil and gas, power, light, machine-building, chemical, food, electronic, building materials, metallurgical and other industries and ensuring the rapid developmen

Industrialisation, Innovation and Infrastructure

Goal 9, one of the 17 SDGs set by the UN for 2030 seeks to build resilient infrastructure, to promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and to foster innovation. Infrastructure investments are essential to achieving sustainable economic development and expanding the rights and opportunities for people to employment and income. To achieve Goal 9, the UN calls upon countries to develop high-quality, reliable, sustainable and resilient infrastructure, including regional and transborder one, for supporting economic development and human wellbeing; to promote inclusive and sustainable industrialisation and, by 2030, to significantly raise industry’s share of employment and gross domestic product; to increase the access of small-scale industrial and other enterprises to financial services, including affordable credits; to upgrade infrastructure and to retrofit industries to make them sustainable, with increased resource-use efficiency and the greater adoption of clean and environmentally sound technologies and industrial processes; to support research and to foster innovations. Inclusive and sustainable industrialisation, along with innovations and infrastructure, can unleash dynamic and competitive economic forces that generate employment and income.

Indicators of the Turkmen Economy

The rapid economic growth, which is eloquently evidenced by the dynamic pace of the country’s development due to the diversification and modernisation of the economy, the carefully thought-out investment policy and the strengthening of the trade and financial sector, pleases with its scale and results. Today, comprehensive measures are being successfully implemented in Turkmenistan for the further progressive development of the country, which contributes to ensuring positive trends in all sectors of the economy and regions, and in terms of annual growth, the country takes one of the leading positions in the world. The development of the national economy is inextricably linked with the transformation of the state into an industrialised one. New industrial sectors were created in the country almost from scratch – oil and gas, engineering, metallurgy, electronics, construction and production of modern building materials, pharmaceuticals, textile production and shipbuilding. Great success has also been achieved in the agricultural sector. The implementation of measures to ensure food security made it possible to significantly increase the volume and range of food products manufactured within the country. The abundance and variety of products on the shelves have become a symbol of the fertility of our land and evidence of a steady increase in the wellbeing of the people and the
