Today, a meeting was held between the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslakhaty of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and representatives of the business community of the Republic of Korea. The subject of interesting discussion was issues related to the current state and promising areas of bilateral cooperation.

Welcoming the guests and noting that he was glad to receive them in white marble Ashgabat, Hero-Arkadag expressed confidence that the current visit of Korean businessmen will be an important stage in the development of the established mutually beneficial partnership, and wished success in the implementation of new initiatives to expand traditional ties.

In this context, Chairman Khalk Maslahaty focused on the fact that in the era of the Revival of a new era of a powerful state in our Fatherland, based on the National Program for the Socio-Economic Development of Turkmenistan in 2022–2052 and the “Program of the President of Turkmenistan for the Socio-Economic Development of the Country in 2022–2028 years" large-scale industrialization work is underway. This opens up new areas of interaction with Korean partners.

Expressing sincere gratitude for the hospitality and the opportunity to discuss issues of bilateral cooperation, the President and CEO of Hyundai Engineering Co., Ltd. Hong Hyong Song conveyed warm greetings and best wishes to Hero-Arkadag from the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea and from the head of Turkmenistan -Korean friendship group from the Korean side.

Thanking for the kind words, the National Leader of the Turkmen people noted that he warmly recalled the visit to the Republic of Korea in November 2022 and the meetings held within its framework. Thus, at a meeting with the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea, issues related to the further development of the traditionally friendly interstate dialogue were discussed.

As Hero-Arkadag emphasized, visits, negotiations and meetings at the highest, intergovernmental and interdepartmental levels give a powerful impetus to the entire range of bilateral cooperation.

It should also be noted that Turkmenistan and the Republic of Korea interact constructively at multilateral platforms. Demonstrating the closeness or coincidence of positions on key aspects of the regional and global agenda, our countries support each other’s initiatives put forward within the framework of the United Nations and other authoritative international structures. Interstate cooperation in the “Central Asia – Republic of Korea” format is also inherent in its effectiveness.

And of course, an integral component of Turkmen-Korean relations is cooperation in the humanitarian sphere, where regular contacts have been established in education, science and culture. Important aspects here are the organization of various joint creative events in both countries, the implementation of educational programs, and the stimulation of connections between scientific centers. Turkmenistan and the Republic of Korea have a unique heritage of spiritual and material culture, and deepening interaction in this area helps bring our peoples closer together and strengthens the bonds of friendship between them. Great importance is also attached to cooperation in healthcare, sports and tourism.

Thus, representatives of the Republic of Korea took part in the International Conference “Main Directions and Potential for the Development of Tourism in Turkmenistan” held in our country. As for healthcare, agreements have been reached on interaction between institutions in this area, and bilateral documents have been signed.

Interstate relations are consistently developing on the basis of the principles of mutual respect, mutual understanding and trust. Cooperation is actively carried out in the political-diplomatic, trade-economic and cultural-humanitarian spheres. At the same time, an important role is given to parliamentary diplomacy and strengthening ties between legislative bodies. Here, great importance is attached to the activities of the Interparliamentary Friendship Group “Turkmenistan–Republic of Korea”.

Speaking about this, Hero-Arkadag also highly appreciated the fruitful partnership with leading Korean companies that have been productively working in the petrochemical, gas processing, motor transport and other sectors of the Turkmen economy for many years. Currently, a significant part of the public transport fleet of Turkmenistan consists of Korean-made vehicles.

Noting that Turkmenistan, which has gained a reputation as a reliable business partner in the world, has formed a solid basis for the effective activities of foreign companies and the implementation of joint investment projects, representatives of the business circles of the Republic of Korea emphasized that cooperation with our country, which is following the path of sustainable development and has a powerful economic potential is a great honor for them.
