Clean Water — Healthy Life!

Water is vital for humans and has an impact on their health. And this is not surprising, since human body consists almost 70 per cent of water. Moreover, this water must be renewed every 7-10 days! Therefore, not only the renewal of our body, but above all our health depends on quality of drinking water. For a long time, there have been discussions that a person should drink 2-2.5 litres of liquid a day. Many diseases are caused by a lack of it in the body. Even mild dehydration can negatively affect our wellbeing. It is very helpful to start your morning with a glass of clean water. It is water that rejuvenates and strengthens our body. Drinking water regularly throughout the day is an excellent prevention of overeating. To consume water is essential for keeping good physical shape. With the help of water, harmful substances are removed from the body, and physical and chemical reactions associated with metabolism are carried out; evaporating from the surface of the skin, water is involved in thermoregulation.

A new park of the capital city

On the eve of the nationwide celebrations of the 30th anniversary of our sacred independence, dozens of large new buildings, industrial, social and cultural facilities, are being commissioned in the capital city and throughout the country. So, in Ashgabat, in a special solemn atmosphere, the opening of a new park and four underground passages at the intersection of Atamurat Niyazov Avenue and Khoja Ahmad Yasavi Street took place. It is generally accepted that parks are the “lungs” of cities that provide clean air, while green spaces themselves create a wonderful atmosphere for relaxation and useful leisure. The new park is named Lachyn. And this is not accidental: after all, the green zone is located between the airport and a new hotel Garagum, where everything is intended for warmly welcoming the guests of our hospitable capital city.

In­de­pen­dence and De­mocra­tic Values

It is quite obvious that an ana­ly­tical excur­sus in­to the chro­no­lo­gy of achievements over 30 years of the sovereign develop­ment of the Turk­men sta­te is im­pos­sib­le wit­hout a de­tai­led stu­dy of the dy­na­mics of trans­for­ma­tions in the socio-po­li­tical li­fe of the count­ry. The on­going re­forms, which not on­ly serve as an in­ductor of in­ter­nal proces­ses, but al­so ge­ne­ra­te a key po­li­tical factor in op­ti­mi­sing exter­nal re­la­tions, are to strengt­hen the de­mocra­tic and le­gal fra­me­works of our society. It should be no­ted that it was de­mocracy that de­ter­mi­ned the furt­her cour­se of the sta­te at the first sta­ges of its sovereign develop­ment. The­re­fo­re, the work to strengt­hen and imp­rove the po­li­tical and le­gal fra­me­works of our sta­te, the Ba­sic Law of which de­fi­nes de­mocra­tic develop­ment as the ini­tial vector of the path of in­de­pen­dence, was car­ried out in coor­di­na­tion with the ful­fil­ment of such a ba­sic task as the for­ma­tion of an accep­tab­le foun­da­tion for the de­mocra­tic princip­les of the na­tio­nal society. In Turk­me­nis­tan, which accor­ding to the Cons­ti­tu­tion is a de­mocra­tic, law-ba­sed and secular sta­te, a hu­ge work has be­en do­ne to crea­te a na­tio­nal de­mocracy that meets the men­ta­li­ty, cre­do, li­fe foun­da­tions, tra­di­tions and cus­toms of the peop­le and al­so the fun­da­men

Trade – a key segment of the economy

Conducted in accordance with the economic strategy of the leader of the nation, the intensification of the trade sphere strengthens foundations of the financial stability of the state, makes an important contribution to the formation of the budget and has a significant impact on the development of production. Growing indicators of domestic trade indicate an increase in the welfare and quality of life of the population, and foreign trade dynamics demonstrates the expansion of the geography of deliveries of Turkmen products to foreign markets. The socioeconomic transformations carried out by the esteemed President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, the introduction of market mechanisms and principles in activities of all sectors of the economy have led to economic growth, also reflected in the sphere of trade.

Access to water – a fundamental human right

Consistently implementing its constructive foreign policy, Turkmenistan takes an active position in promoting water diplomacy and, with its targeted initiatives, makes a worthy contribution to the development of balanced solutions related to water resources. At the Third Consultative Meeting of the Heads of State of Central Asia, held in the Avaza national tourism zone on August 6, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov emphasised once again that the rational use of water resources was among the main aspects of regional cooperation. This critical aspect of the policy pursued by Turkmenistan is an integral factor in global sustainable development. The UN General Assembly adopted a Resolution declaring 2018–2028 the International Decade for Action “Water for Sustainable Development”. The Decade Goals put an emphasis on sustainable development, integrated water resources management and the promotion of international cooperation in this direction.

This initiative has become another confirming factor of the attention of our state to the issues of strengthening international transport cooperation, which is in line with international and regional efforts to overcome the pandemic and its economic and social consequences.

On the hills of Dehistan

in his historic speech addressed to the schoolchildren and students on the Day of Knowledge and Student Youth, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov particularly emphasised the importance of the work Turkmenistan – Heart of the Great Silk Road and the historical and cultural heritage in the upbringing of the younger generation.

Oasis around Mounts Syunt and Hasar

Protected by two ridges of Mounts Syunt and Hasar, the valley of the Sumbar river is a wonderful corner of nature. The endlessly long Aydere gorge, partly included in the Syunt-Hasardag State Nature Reserve of the Ministry of Agriculture and Environment Protection of Turkmenistan, stretches there. The river of the same name, repeating the bends of the canyon’s sides, has a fast and stormy current, many small waterfalls – the most beautiful one can be found in the side gorge of the Sumbar valley called Gochdemir, and also rapids, rifts, chutes and shallow areas where moisture-loving and aquatic plants cling to the walls. Walking along this wide corridor, you can imagine yourself in a botanical garden, looking at the tall elm trees, which in the East are called karagach. These fast-growing light-loving deciduous giants are able to withstand cold and heat equally well. The tree adorns both the south and the north of the country, thus attracting the attention of gardeners and ecologists. There, low trees of Acer turcomanicum coexist with thickets of barberry and wild rose, rare wild-growing trees of Malus turkmenorum and Pyrus boissieriana are hidden in the thick of the forest. The place near the water is occupied by walnut trees and white-trunked plane trees, wild grapes and lush blackberry bushes “cling” to smooth rocks, and fig and cherry plum trees have chosen the dry sides of
