The Holy Independence of the Motherland — the Source of the Prosperity of the State and the People

Exhibition of Economic Achievements of Turkmenistan Organised in Ashgabat The Expo Centre of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the country hosted the Exhibition of Economic Achievements of Turkmenistan, devoted to the 31st anniversary of the country’s independence. Traditionally held on the eve of the main holiday of the Motherland, which is steadily advancing along the path of modernisation and innovation under the leadership of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, the Economic Exhibition became a kind of report of the year, vividly illustrating the success of the national economy, its inexhaustible potential and promising directions of development in the period of the Revival of the New Era of the Powerful State.

Independence Is the Unity of People and the Power of State

The declaration of the state independence of Turkmenistan has become a historic event in the development of statehood and the legal system. The country entered the international arena as an independent, sovereign state, and on March 2, 1992, became a full member of the UN. During this short historical period, a wide range of political, legal, social and economic measures were taken to strengthen the statehood and to improve the wellbeing of the people. State independence is the right of the people to determine their own future. This right also means the huge responsibility of the people and every citizen for the fate of their country and their future. The independence of Turkmenistan marked the beginning of a new historical era of ensuring human rights and freedoms, reviving and developing spiritual values, customs and traditions that ensure social cohesion.

Flowers Grown with Love

The Centre for Public Organisations of Turkmenistan hosted a competition on professional skills of flower growers, organised by the National Trade Union Centre of Turkmenistan, the Central Council of Women’s Union and the Ashgabat City Hyakimlik. The event under the motto “Flowers grown with love” was devoted to the 31st anniversary of the independence of Turkmenistan. The colourful event featured bright compositions of fresh flowers, decorated in different styles. Skilled florists put all their love for the country and pride in achievements of the period of independence into colourful compositions.

A description of a meaningful life

Our people have always attached great importance to the upbringing of children. This fact is obvious when people read the Turkmen proverbs, sayings, poetic folklore, legends, and parables. The book ‘Ömrümiň manysy’ by our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, who adheres to national principles and values in this valuable work, is of great importance in this context. The book’s first chapter ‘The Culture of Being’ is dedicated to education. The early choice of a profession, while the children are still at secondary school, makes this issue one of the great tasks facing the teachers and awakes interest in the book. Our Hero-Arkadag writes that a child's career begins with a mother. This fact takes the readers on a journey to the epicentre of folk art, called lullaby.
