Аrkadag city: a grandiose urban development project in Turkmenistan

The new, modern administration center of Ahal velayat, which is being built in the sacred historical land of our courageous ancestors, in the Gokdepe district of Ahal velayat, enters the history of independence of the country as a new page. At present, the architectural image of the modern city reflects the rapid social and economic development of the Motherland, our national heritage, spiritual values, and the rich history and cultural traditions of our people.

People’s Representation: a New Look

Popular representation is the most important feature of the modern parliamentary system. It clearly expresses the dominant position of the representative function as an expression of the interests and will of the entire people, that is, the totality of the citizens of that state. The search for the most favourable form corresponding to the people (nation) in a particular country is a rather long and complex process. And among the Turkmen people, they are rooted in the distant past. The institution of direct participation of the people in determining the fate of the state and society appeared already in the first Turkmen states, first in the form of community (tribal) maslahats (kurultays – congresses), and then in state-structured authorities. The original national traditions of popular representation even today serve as important and cornerstone pillars of the constitutional system, on which the social and state unity of our country and its people has been based for centuries. The representative function is predominant or fundamental in relation to law making.

Caspian Sea Vector of Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan that has a modern transport infrastructure and is located at the intersection of the transport and transit corridors of the Eurasian continent, many of which pass through the Caspian Sea region, attaches great importance to creating favourable political, economic and legal conditions for the effective use of the transport potential. This is also a key issue on the economic agenda of the region. The development of multimodal transport infrastructure in the Caspian Sea region was considered at a working meeting, which was held by the Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty of the Milli Gengesh of Turkmenistan on the instructions of the President of Turkmenistan in the Avaza national tourism zone on November 24. If we trace the geography of the main trade corridors of ancient times, we can see that they ran mainly along two axial directions: North–South (the route from the Varangians to the Greeks, the Volga trade route) and East–West (the Lapis Lazuli Way, the Great Silk Road). Moreover, many of them ran through the Caspian Sea region. This region became a key crossroads due to its favourable location on the border of the large states (Persia, Sogdiana and Khwarezm). The Caspian Sea region started to play an important role with the beginning of the development of the oil industry on the Absheron Peninsula.

Import Substitution as a Crucial Economic Factor

A flexible and pragmatic import substitution strategy underlies the successful development of all spheres of Turkmen economy. Its successful implementation contributed to the continued downward trend of imports, since the increase in domestic production has enabled to reduce the imports of many products, consumer goods and foodstuffs. 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.
