The youth are the future of the country

Turkmenistan creates ample opportunities for the younger generations to be smart, healthy, broad-minded, and skilful professionals. The President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov set a priority goal to establish the necessary conditions for the youth to continue the development and transformations in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. The work on attracting young people to the development of the national economy is implemented within the youth policy in our independent, permanently neutral country. In this context, the goals defined in the State Programme on State Youth Policy in Turkmenistan for 2021–2025, as well as in the Concept of Digital Economy Development in Turkmenistan for 2019–2025 and other relevant programmes and plans, meet the requirements of the times.

The poetry by the great thinker

The noble personality and intelligent creativity of Magtymguly Pyragy have a special place in the centuries-old history of the rich cultural heritage of the Turkmen people, as well as in the literary world of the East. Thus, the great poet and thinker made an invaluable contribution to the world culture and to the philosophy of the Turkmen people. The wise poet loved the country with all his heart and devoted his whole life to the Motherland and its well-being. Thus, the poems about the Motherland, country, and unity occupy the most prominent place among the poet's works. Magtymguly Pyragy composed a great number of poems addressing these issues. Magtymguly wrote the poems of educational character, which foster the humane qualities in young people. In these poems, he aimed to give noble advices to his contemporaries. The poet called them to being brave, generous, kind, open-handed, hospitable, and condemned those who are rude, unscrupulous, arrogant, and bad-tempered.

Languages build the bridges of friendship

The Turkmen people have a wise saying ‘One who speaks only one language is one person, but one who speaks two languages is two people’. Our ancestors learnt other languages along with their mother tongue. Many poets and scientists created in the Arabic, Persian, Hindi, and German languages. This tradition comes from the times of our ancestors and has special importance thanks to the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. Multilingualism is emerging in the country. For example, a number of students of Magtymguly Turkmen State University speak 3-4 languages fluently. The President of Turkmenistan instructed to learn the English, Russian, Chinese and German languages not only in the field of linguistics, but also in other fields such as technology and economics. To date, excellent conditions and opportunities are created to implement this task in our country.

The country of happy children

World Children's Day is widely celebrated in many countries, including in Turkmenistan, on the first day of summer – June 1. This date has been added to the list of national holidays to indicate the concern for the younger generations in our country. Thanks to the wise policy of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov, large-scale work is underway to educate the smart, well-mannered, patriotic and bright children, who represent the future of our country and the happiness of life in our Motherland, where all dreams come true. Comprehensive concern for children, their well-being and harmonious development is a priority of the state policy in the independent, permanently neutral Turkmenistan. This policy reflects the humanistic principles and great spiritual and moral values of the Turkmen people.

Our white city, Ashgabat

Ashgabat, the white marble capital of our Motherland, has a splendid appearance nowadays. Moreover, the celebration of the Ashgabat City Day demonstrated the potential of the Turkmen capital to the world. The festive events were organized in all corners of the capital, and beautiful music created a wonderful atmosphere. Our white city, Ashgabat, is becoming more beautiful thanks to the concern of our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov. It should be noted that Ashgabat has become a large centre of sports.
