Participants of the international conference “Main directions and potential for tourism development in Turkmenistan”


Dear conference participants!

Dear guests!

I cordially congratulate you on the start of the International Conference “Main Directions and Potential for Tourism Development in Turkmenistan”!

I firmly believe that the conference held in Ashgabat, the capital of independent neutral Turkmenistan, will be an important step in the development of international cooperation between tourism organizations of the world.

In the era of the Renaissance of a new era of a powerful state, our neutral Fatherland is consistently expanding constructive partnerships with various countries. The development of international interaction in the field of tourism also plays an important role in the foreign policy of Turkmenistan. Our independent state is actively increasing its dialogue with the World Tourism Organization, the World Federation of Tourist Cities and foreign tour operators.

Regular holding of the International Conference “Main directions and potential for tourism development in Turkmenistan” is of great importance in the further development of this area, strengthening cooperation with countries around the world, exchanging experience, and establishing business ties with partners.

Constantly developing international interaction, established thanks to the constructive initiatives of the National Leader of the Turkmen people, largely contributes to the achievement of success and the introduction of world practice in this area in the country.

Large-scale state programs for the development of tourism increase the global authority of neutral Turkmenistan and find broad support from the international community. The tourism industry of our country is developing on the basis of progressive achievements, rich experience, and modern trends in international tourism.

Dear conference participants!

Dear friends!

It is especially significant that the holding of this international conference coincides with the launch ceremony of events on the occasion of the proclamation of the city of Anau by the International Organization of Turkic Culture (TURKSOY) as the cultural capital of the Turkic world in 2024. Anau occupies a unique place in the glorious history of the Turkmen people. This city plays an important role in popularizing the ancient culture of Turkmenistan, national values, traditions and customs of our people in the world.

Historical monuments of our country, such as Ancient Merv, Nisa, Kunyaurgench, the “Great Silk Road: Zarafshan-Karakum Corridor”, state nature reserves “Bereketli Garagum”, “Gaplaňgyr”, state biosphere reserve “Repetek” and its desert ecosystem “Ýerajy” included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. These places are widely known for their ancient monuments dating back to early centuries and their unique nature.

Historical and cultural values and original traditions of the Turkmen people are the property of the national heritage.

Rich flora and fauna, archaeological sights of Turkmenistan, including medieval architecture, are objects of increased interest to foreign travelers.

The city of Ashgabat, included in the ranking of the World Federation of Tourist Cities, the city of Arkadag, which amazes with the beauty of its buildings, the Avaza National Tourist Zone, and the natural features of the Karakum and Koytendag deserts testify to the enormous tourism potential of the country.

In the future, holding such international conferences is intended to greatly contribute to the popularization of historical, cultural and natural monuments of Turkmenistan, beautiful corners of the Fatherland, and attracting tourists to our country.

Dear people!

Dear guests!

Once again, I cordially congratulate you on the start of the International Conference “Main Directions and Potential for Tourism Development in Turkmenistan”!

I wish you good health and great success in your activities to develop the tourism industry!

President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov.
