Sustainable transport – sustainable development

For the Sake of the Country’s Progress and for the Good of Every Citizen

In the period of the Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State, the socioeconomic policy of Turkmenistan, pursued under the leadership of the respected President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, is aimed at the increase in the welfare and quality of the life of the population, the ensuring of sustainable economic growth, the diversification and competitiveness of the national economy, industrial and innovative development, the strengthening of market and institutional reforms, the growth in investment activity, the strengthening of foreign economic positions, the expansion of international cooperation and the integration of the country into the world economic system and environment protection. The priority factor in the development of the national economy at the present stage is the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted in 2015 by all UN member states, as a guideline for the long term. These goals address the most important economic, social and environmental issues, and the guiding principle is “leaving no one behind”. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are comprehensive, interconnected and indivisible and ensure a balance of all three components of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.

Neutrality is a Model of Creative Humanism

The inexhaustible sources of the creative way of life of our people are commitment to a non-violent way of resolving tense situations and unity based on selfless love for humanity. The thinker of the early 19th century Niyazkuli at-Turkmeni writes, “A kind attitude towards people and wishes for peace are the adornment of any people, where faith in friendship and loyalty in friendship represent the basis of the moral power of the nation.” The neutral path of development is not an indifferent avoidance of emerging contradictions, but an active approach to resolving them, where restraint and non-interference are the conditions for the peaceful resolution of disputes and clashes. This position allows us to lay a strong foundation for peaceful and creative dialogue, where the ability to listen and be heard reigns. It is in this formula of humanism that a strong will and sincere commitment to action is developed for the sake of the peaceful resolution of all disagreements. The wise thinker and humanist poet of the 18th century Dovletmammet Azadi in his treatise Wagzy-Azat writes that confidential and frank dialogue serves for the sake of universal happiness and wellbeing.

Current Issues of Medical Science

In the period of the Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State in our country, particular importance is attached to the protection of public health, which is a priority vector of the policy of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov. The basis of this policy, laid by the National Leader of the Turkmen people Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, is scientific validity, prevention and an integrated approach to protecting public health with addressing issues of forming and stimulating a healthy lifestyle. At the present stage, the country’s healthcare system is developing at an unprecedented pace. International medical centres, hospitals and health houses that meet the most advanced international standards are being built. An important role is attached to the development of scientific research and prevention of diseases, in particular non-infectious ones, including oncological.

Another Triumph of Domestic Sports

The team of the International University for Humanities and Development successfully represented our country at the 23rd Inter College Environmental Public Speaking Competition, which was held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In total, about 500 students from 89 higher educational establishments of such countries as the United Arab Emirates, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, Egypt, the Republic of Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Tunisia, Oman, Yemen, Morocco, Jordan and others took part in this representative competition.

With Respect for Folk Traditions

Women’s needlework is a fine and unique art. And if it has stood the test of time, like Turkmen embroidery, then it is the cultural heritage of the people. The skill of hand embroidery is an important part of Turkmen decorative and applied arts, passed down from one generation to another and has survived to this day as an indisputable property of the nation. Embroidered canvases can be called an artistic narrative, telling about the glorious past of the people, the way of life of our ancestors, national traditions and achievements. Like other types of needlework (carpet weaving and felting), embroidery in various ways has been known to the Turkmen for hundreds of years. The variety of patterns and their harmony is a synthesis of long historical development and a result of centuries-old traditions. This is evidenced by archaeological findings and ancient specimens of embroidery kept in the storerooms of state museums and private collections. Therefore, it is necessary to protect the priceless heritage and to study it from a scientific point of view.

Strengthening the Body’s Defences in Autumn

In autumn, colds and other diseases come along with yellow leaves. The best treatment is prevention! Here are several recommendations to reduce the risk of colds. Do not neglect rest. It is necessary to observe a work and rest schedule to avoid excessive energy consumption. Try to have enough sleep, spending at least 7-8 hours a day. It is during sleep that the functioning of the immune system is normalised and the functioning of all organs and systems is actively restored.

Universal energy access

One of the major components of the SDGs is Goal 7: Affordable and clean energy. Turkmenistan aims its energy policy at ensuring reliable and stable transit of energy to consumers and building up the export potential. The country is implementing the strategy of the progressive development of production and technical capacities of the power industry oriented towards the high rates of dynamical economic growth. The guideline used to develop this sector is the application of advanced technologies, highly efficient and reliable equipment and automated control systems. The country is implementing the National Renewable Energy Strategy until 2030, the Programme on Energy Diplomacy for 2021–2025 and the Energy Efficiency Programme for 2018–2024, aimed at promoting and efficiently using renewable energy sources, increasing the role of alternative energy sources and intensifying energy cooperation between Turkmenistan and international organisations.

Turkmenistan Hosts Specialised Exhibition of the Islamic Republic of Iran

The Iran Prože Specialised Exhibition of the Islamic Republic of Iran was organised in the capital of Turkmenistan jointly with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Turkmenistan. The exhibition of the achievements of Iranian commodity producers, designed to help the two neighbouring countries strengthen and expand trade and economic cooperation served as an effective platform to showcase their scientific and industrial potential and to search for new ways to boost fruitful partnerships in a wide range of areas.

Youth Promotes Values of Peace and Cooperation

The Youth Forum entitled “New Epoch of the Great Silk Road”, initiated by the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov, became a landmark event in interstate humanitarian cooperation. Representatives of youth organisations, parliaments, government agencies, businesses, science, education, culture and art from Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and China and ambassadors for the Sustainable Development Programme for Central Asia and China conducted for three days a mutually interested and constructive dialogue on a wide range of issues of concern to young people. The event was completed successfully, its participants left for their countries, but the Forum became of timeless significance, serving as an organising element of the future world, beçause in 5, 10, 15 years, this future will be in the hands of these young people. The modern world is changing rapidly. All global problems of humanity invariably have a youth dimension. Therefore, it is young people who today seek more than ever before to comprehend their role in sustainable development and the development of a culture of peace and cooperation based on universal humanistic values. In this regard, the role of international youth forums in building the future of the world is difficult to overestimate. Such events, held on an ongoing basis, help young people find like-minded people and togeth

New Frontiers of Agricultural Complex

The most important priority of the state policy pursued by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov is the intensive development of the agroindustrial complex, the ensuring of food abundance in the country, the expansion of the export opportunities of the national economy and the strengthening of the economic power of Turkmenistan. Large-scale transformations, aimed at raising the efficiency of agriculture and increasing the volume of the production of various agricultural goods, are being successfully implemented in the agroindustrial complex. As world experience shows, no other product will give the country and its people such wellbeing and the country prosperity, economic activity and progress as agricultural crops. Only the transition of the agricultural economy to market relations can solve all the socioeconomic problems facing any country. And it is not accidental that the most important priority of the economic strategy, pursued by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, is the active implementation of agricultural reforms, aimed at the diversification of production, the creation of favourable conditions for the agricultural industry, the widespread introduction of market mechanisms and the effective use of scientific achievements in this sphere.

The World Kurash Championships

The physical and spiritual development and education of the younger generation is one of the main directions of the policy of the respected President Serdar Berdimuhamedov. The personal example of Arkadagly Hero Serdar, who is an Honoured Coach of Turkmenistan and the President of the National Olympic Committee of Turkmenistan and his regular participation in mass sports events, organised in our country, inspires the country’s youth to do sports and to follow a healthy lifestyle. As part of his working visit to Budapest (Hungary) in August of the current year, the distinguished President took part in the ceremonial events of the World Athletics Championships, which is a clear indication of the commitment of the head of state to a healthy lifestyle and the development of international cooperation in the field of sports. This area of partnership is a subject of interested discussion during foreign visits of the President of Turkmenistan. In this context, the improvement of the sphere of physical culture and sports and the development of the principles of a healthy lifestyle are reflected in the national legislation of Turkmenistan, which is based on the Constitution of Turkmenistan. Article 15 of the Basic Law stipulates that the state promotes the development of international relations in the fields of science, culture, education, sports and tourism. The legislation of T

State Museum of the State Cultural Centre of Turkmenistan is 25 Years Old

In November 1998, the State Museum of the State Cultural Centre of Turkmenistan was festively opened. It was formed as a result of merging two previously operating museums – the Museum of National History and Ethnography of Turkmenistan and the Museum of Fine Arts of Turkmenistan. At the end of April 2011, the National Leader of the Turkmen people, Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov issued a Resolution on the creation of its branches within the structure of the Main National Museum of Turkmenistan – the Galkynyş Museum, the Bitaraplyk Museum and the Garaşsyzlyk Museum and on placing them respectively in Monuments to the Constitution of Turkmenistan, to the Neutrality of Turkmenistan and to the Independence of Turkmenistan. Currently, the State Museum includes the Museum of the President of Turkmenistan, the Museum of the History of Turkmenistan, the Museum of Ethnography and Local History and the above branches.

Traditional Costume – Heritage of the Turkmen People

The national costume of the Turkmen people, going along a long path of development, is linked closely to the history, traditions and aesthetic views of the era. The design of a modern costume cannot evolve in isolation from national traditions. The national costume is not only a bright element of age-old culture, but also the integrity of traditional cut, ornament and decor. Today is the heyday of the Turkmen national culture, a time when special attention is paid to national decorative art. An important element in clothing design is the properties of fabrics, embroidery, finishing and their decorative capabilities. All the typical features of ancient Turkmen clothing are transferred to modern design: the traditional dress and robe are adopted as the basis.

How to Prevent Seasonal Diseases

The change of season is always a test for our body. The air temperature drops, the days become shorter, sleep and eating patterns change – the body goes into acclimatisation mode and becomes more vulnerable. Autumn is the time when the personal health problems, physical and mental, become more acute. According to statistics, the largest number of exacerbations of chronic diseases occur during this period. Even healthy people experience stress during the transition period, not to mention those with health problems. Climate has a direct and indirect effect on humans. The direct influence is very diverse and is due to the direct effect of climatic factors on the human body, particularly on the conditions of heat exchange with the environment: on the blood supply to the skin, the respiratory and cardiovascular system and sweating. Many people find it very difficult to adjust to autumn weather due to the sudden change in temperature, dampness and coolness.
