In recent years, Turkmen producers have significantly expanded their presence in the market. Such large-scale work allows creating new industrial areas for Turkmen economy and expanding consistently the list of domestically produced goods able to compete in the market. Domestic manufacturers have made great progress in all sectors of the economy and consistently expand the list of goods, contributing to saturating the domestic commodity market and enhancing the export potential of our country.
