Along the path of creation - to the great future of the Fatherland


As is known, the “Program of socio-economic development of Turkmenistan and investment in 2024” approved by the Resolution of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov became the central theme of the meeting of the Presidium of the Khalk Maslakhaty, held on February 22 under the chairmanship of the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Khalk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. At this important forum for the socio-political life of the country, specific steps were discussed for the consistent implementation of the tasks outlined in the above-mentioned Program, aimed at ensuring sustainable dynamics of economic development of independent neutral Turkmenistan this year, improving the well-being and quality of life of the population. The Halk Maslakhaty, the Mejlis and public associations of the country are given a special role in achieving the high goals set, promoting the principles of national statehood, strengthening the unity and cohesion of the people of Turkmenistan. As stated during the meeting held with the participation of leaders and representatives of these important structures, the country has successfully completed the main tasks envisaged by the Program for 2023. The national economy has clearly demonstrated its stability and competitiveness. Thus, last year, a steady growth rate of gross domestic product was maintained; a large volume of investments, as in previous years, was aimed at developing industries, the social sphere and the service sector. A striking event of last year and the modern history of Turkmenistan was the grand opening of the first stage of the “smart” city of Arkadag, which received on a legislative basis the special legal status of a city of national significance. Built on the initiative of the National Leader of the Turkmen people Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, it became the first “smart city” not only in our country, but also in the Central Asian region. Evidence of the high appreciation of the large-scale work carried out was the presentation of more than 20 certificates, diplomas and congratulatory messages to the city of Arkadag from major international organizations, foreign scientific institutions and well-known foreign companies. Another significant event of the past year was the creation of the Halk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan, as well as the elections of deputies of the Mejlis, members of the Halk Maslakhaty and Gengeshes, held on an alternative basis, on the principles of transparency and openness. As Hero-Arkadag noted in his speech at the meeting of the Presidium of the Khalk Maslakhaty, the current year 2024 will be marked by the 300th anniversary of the great Turkmen poet and thinker of the East Magtymguly Fragi. A number of ceremonial events are dedicated to this significant date, which will be organized both in the country and abroad. Thus, in the year, held under the motto “The Fount of the Mind of Magtymguly Fragi”, for the first time in the city of Arkadag, a Week of Culture will be held, dedicated to the Day of Workers of Culture and Art, as well as the poetry of the classic of Turkmen literature, who elevated his native people. Emphasizing the importance of the Law “On the establishment of the anniversary medal of Turkmenistan “Magtymguly Pyragynyň 300 ýyllygyna” signed by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, the National Leader of the Turkmen people stated the advisability of continuing such initiatives in the future to legislate and thereby perpetuate the cultural heritage of Magtymguly Fragi. The centuries-old dream of our ancestors about the unity and cohesion of the nation, its stable, powerful state, sung in the poems of this outstanding genius of speech, has come true in our time. Over the years of independence, sovereign Turkmenistan, whose economy is developing at an accelerated pace, has firmly established its position among the countries that are successfully integrating into the world economic space. Consistent implementation of the strategic course for accelerated industrial and innovative development has ensured the economic independence of our state, thanks to which all significant sectors are successfully developing in Turkmenistan in these difficult times for the global economy. As a result of the programs implemented, based on the principles “The State is for the People!”, “The Motherland is the Motherland only with the people! The state is a state only with the people!”, the social and living standards of the population are steadily increasing. The appearance of villages, cities, etraps is being transformed, and new jobs are being created. The National Leader of the Turkmen people emphasized that the Program for 2024, compiled on the basis of the Program “Revival of a new era of a powerful state: National Program for the socio-economic development of Turkmenistan in 2022–2052” and “Program of the President of Turkmenistan for the socio-economic development of the country in 2022–2028” years”, is justified financially and economically, from the position of investment feasibility, taking into account previously achieved milestones. In accordance with the objectives defined in the new program document, the Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan focused on economic, industrial and production goals. The main areas of investment include the development of industrial sectors, the creation of innovative enterprises and new production facilities, agricultural reform, significant improvement of food supply, and expansion of processing industries. Within the framework of the “Program for the socio-economic development of Turkmenistan and investments in 2024”, a number of projects are planned, including dozens of large ones - of international and regional importance. The construction of the second stage of the city of the future - the city of Arkadag - will continue. The impressive volumes of financial resources allocated for the implementation of planned projects are investments in the happy future of our sovereign Fatherland. As the most important tasks for the development of trade and services, Hero-Arkadag identified the effective functioning of the economy, the profitability of commodity producers, the creation of new jobs, increasing wages and incomes of the population, which leads to increased consumer demand for goods and services. By the way, the stable dynamics of development of the national economy that has been maintained all these years, the increase in the volume of investments aimed at building human potential, has made it possible to significantly improve the standard of living and well-being of the population, which has a positive impact on the demographic growth observed in recent years. Speaking about the goals of the Social Orientation Program, the National Leader of the Turkmen people focused on ensuring employment of the population and its social security. Significant investments are being made in expanding social infrastructure, including the construction of housing, residential buildings intended for the category of especially needy citizens, medical institutions, secondary schools and kindergartens, highways, water, gas, energy supply and communication systems, water treatment facilities, as well as transport and other social services. The main goals of the work planned for implementation in all areas are: widespread introduction of advanced technologies, a digital system, creation of a favorable business environment, development of the non-state sector. During the meeting, National Leader of the Turkmen people Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov focused the participants’ attention on the key aspects of the work ahead this year, including its regulatory support. In this regard, the priority steps were identified to further improve the legislative framework in such areas as attracting investments, protecting and supporting investors in our country, combating the legalization of proceeds from crime, tax management and optimization of tax collections, protection of intellectual property, guaranteeing the protection of rights to intellectual property at the state and international level. Along with this, the need to modernize national legislation in accordance with the rules and principles of the World Trade Organization was noted, taking into account the fact that Turkmenistan is a country joining this Organization. The importance of introducing a digital system when conducting banking transactions and payment orders, bringing the regulatory framework for financing in line with world practice to integrate the national economy into the global market was emphasized. As the National Leader of the Turkmen people noted, it is necessary to intensify scientific research, thoroughly study “artificial intelligence”, create and promote new methods of business and commerce in the scientific and production field, develop relevant regulations, as well as the necessary documents for the effective functioning of the innovation system . Directing the Mejlis deputies to the upcoming work, Hero-Arkadag emphasized that all initiatives of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov in the field of domestic and foreign policy, which invariably find popular approval, must receive legislative support. Legislation in a number of important areas should also be analyzed. The importance of regular analysis of legislation affecting issues of improving the regulation of employment and labor relations, family protection, motherhood and childhood, support for young people, and healthcare was noted. The measures taken to ensure the well-being of the people and create all conditions for a happy life for the younger generation are clear confirmation that caring for people is an invariable priority in our country. One of the key tasks in ensuring the social security of the population was the legislative consolidation of government initiatives and the enormous concern for expanding assistance to those in need of care, ensuring a happy life for every person and, first of all, for children. In this context, the importance of developing the Regulations on the guardianship and trusteeship bodies, the Regulations on the procedure for implementing guardianship and trusteeship, which are specified in the Law of Turkmenistan “On Guardianship and Trusteeship,” was emphasized. The positive practice accumulated in this matter by the Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov Charitable Foundation for Assistance to Children in Need of Care is indicative here. At the meeting it was emphasized that great attention should be paid to improving regulations in order to protect and support the younger generation. The high level of trust placed in young people inspires them to work creatively for a bright future. The wise works of Hero Arkadag, as well as the wonderful book of Arkadagly Hero Serdar “Ýaşlar – Watanyň daýanjy” serve as a guide to action for young Turkmen citizens. Along with youth policy, special importance should be given to strengthening the legal support of the created conditions in the name of exalting the dignity of the guardians of the sacred family hearth among Turkmen - mothers, women and girls, and protecting their legitimate interests. In accordance with the Plan of work and activities approved at the meeting of the Presidium of the Khalk Maslakhaty for the main areas of activity of the Khalk Maslakhaty, scheduled for implementation this year together with the Mejlis of the country, ministries, industry departments and public associations within the framework of the implementation of the “Social and Economic Development Program of Turkmenistan” and investments in 2024”, identified tasks for improving national legislation based on the right of legislative initiative. In this regard, the need was emphasized to attract competent, experienced specialists and experts to the newly created Working Commission for the preparation of bills in order to promote advanced and relevant ideas, take measures to provide legislative support for the initiatives, instructions and decisions of the President of Turkmenistan. We are also talking about the creation of an expert-legal commission under the Office of the Halk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan, consisting of deputies, representatives of other government bodies and public associations for analytical work and preparation of proposals for improving the current legislation. Hero-Arkadag noted the importance of organizing meetings of members of the Halk Maslakhaty and deputies of the Mejlis with scientists, specialists and experts on theoretical and practical issues of legislative activity, meetings dedicated to the implementation of decisions and instructions voiced at the meeting of the Halk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan, Resolutions and instructions of the President of Turkmenistan regarding the main directions development of the country in 2024, as well as grandiose goals and priority areas of medium- and long-term development programs for the country. Along with this, the National Leader of the Turkmen people focused on the need to continue to carry out activities to improve legal culture, establish the principles of a healthy lifestyle, popularize national culture, family values, traditions and customs. Turkmenistan is developing on the basis of the inviolable values of democracy, the rule of law, civil harmony and unity. This work in the year “The Fount of the Mind of Magtymguly Fragi” will be continued in a new format, at a higher level, based on the greatness of the past, the grandiose achievements of today. Striving for a bright future, we will ensure the dynamic advancement of our country to new frontiers of progress, noted Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. And these words of the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Hero-Arkadag, which resonated with every Turkmenistan, sounded a powerful call for the speedy practical implementation of the outlined high tasks, united by one great goal - to strengthen the economic power and prosperity of the Fatherland, to increase its authority in the international arena.
