For the Sake of the Country’s Progress and for the Good of Every Citizen

In the period of the Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State, the socioeconomic policy of Turkmenistan, pursued under the leadership of the respected President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, is aimed at the increase in the welfare and quality of the life of the population, the ensuring of sustainable economic growth, the diversification and competitiveness of the national economy, industrial and innovative development, the strengthening of market and institutional reforms, the growth in investment activity, the strengthening of foreign economic positions, the expansion of international cooperation and the integration of the country into the world economic system and environment protection. The priority factor in the development of the national economy at the present stage is the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted in 2015 by all UN member states, as a guideline for the long term. These goals address the most important economic, social and environmental issues, and the guiding principle is “leaving no one behind”. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are comprehensive, interconnected and indivisible and ensure a balance of all three components of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.

Neutrality is a Model of Creative Humanism

The inexhaustible sources of the creative way of life of our people are commitment to a non-violent way of resolving tense situations and unity based on selfless love for humanity. The thinker of the early 19th century Niyazkuli at-Turkmeni writes, “A kind attitude towards people and wishes for peace are the adornment of any people, where faith in friendship and loyalty in friendship represent the basis of the moral power of the nation.” The neutral path of development is not an indifferent avoidance of emerging contradictions, but an active approach to resolving them, where restraint and non-interference are the conditions for the peaceful resolution of disputes and clashes. This position allows us to lay a strong foundation for peaceful and creative dialogue, where the ability to listen and be heard reigns. It is in this formula of humanism that a strong will and sincere commitment to action is developed for the sake of the peaceful resolution of all disagreements. The wise thinker and humanist poet of the 18th century Dovletmammet Azadi in his treatise Wagzy-Azat writes that confidential and frank dialogue serves for the sake of universal happiness and wellbeing.

At the present stage, the country’s healthcare system is developing at an unprecedented pace. International medical centres, hospitals and health houses that meet the most advanced international standards are being built. An important role is attached to the development of scientific research and prevention of diseases, in particular non-infectious ones, including oncological.

With Respect for Folk Traditions

Women’s needlework is a fine and unique art. And if it has stood the test of time, like Turkmen embroidery, then it is the cultural heritage of the people. The skill of hand embroidery is an important part of Turkmen decorative and applied arts, passed down from one generation to another and has survived to this day as an indisputable property of the nation. Embroidered canvases can be called an artistic narrative, telling about the glorious past of the people, the way of life of our ancestors, national traditions and achievements. Like other types of needlework (carpet weaving and felting), embroidery in various ways has been known to the Turkmen for hundreds of years. The variety of patterns and their harmony is a synthesis of long historical development and a result of centuries-old traditions. This is evidenced by archaeological findings and ancient specimens of embroidery kept in the storerooms of state museums and private collections. Therefore, it is necessary to protect the priceless heritage and to study it from a scientific point of view.
