Digital transformations in the national economy

In the modern world, the digital economy, the knowledge economy, the information society form a new socioeconomic system. Today, digital technologies are not just an indispensable part of the economies, they have become a progressive innovation platform where subject knowledge and intangible production dominate – the main indicator characterising the information society. Therefore, the developed states of the world, including Turkmenistan, pay close attention to the harmonious development of the systemically important elements of the digital economy, the information society and the knowledge economy. Today, one of the key drivers of the socioeconomic development of Turkmenistan is the digital transformation of the national economy. In this regard, large-scale work is being done under the wise leadership of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov to build a highly efficient economic system using modern digital systems and to turn our country into an information-driven economy.

Prevention and Healthy Lifestyles Protect from Diseases

The protection of the health of the people of Turkmenistan, and most importantly, the prevention and early detection of diseases are the key priorities of the Saglyk State Programme that is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, developed and implemented today under the patronage of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. The policy pursued by Arkadag aims to fight unhealthy habits, in which Turkmenistan occupies one of the leading places in the world. In their turn, unhealthy habits are the main modifiable risk factors for vascular diseases; moreover, they intensify adverse effects of other risk factors. Nowadays, urbanisation and industrialisation on a global scale have resulted in the global rise in life expectancy. In this regard, it has led to an increased incidence of chronic cerebral circulation insufficiency (CCCI) linked to cerebrovascular diseases that is an acute medical and social problem. The first signs of chronic cerebral circulation insufficiency are recurring headaches or dizziness, disturbed sleep and depressed mood, cognitive impairment and chronic fatigue. These signs are invisible externally, and people do not pay attention to them, thereby exacerbating their health conditions. However, the avoidance or regression of the disease can be attained through following simple prevention rules and timely visiting a medical specialist.

The Brooch like the Sun

Silver jewellery, as a type of folk art, keeps the secrets of making them, the skill of jewellers and the mystic charm of the centuries-old traditions of the Turkmen people. The masters of the ancient civilisations of Altyn-depe and Margiana produced the first artefacts. This is evidenced by gold, silver and jewellery articles found during archaeological excavations. Traditionally, carpet weaving, felt making and decorative embroidery have always been mainly the domain of women’s creativity, then the manufacture of metal, leather and wood items is exclusively the men’s trade. The work of zerger – this is how a jeweller is called – has always been standing high. Because this craft required the skills in working with tools, the knowledge of metal smelting and gemstone processing, the understanding of the traditions of creating such works of national art, artistic taste and great patience. The secrets of jeweller’s art are passed down from one generation to another and bequeathed by fathers to sons. In the early 20th century, any smart teenager could become an apprentice, and in our time, a female jeweller is no longer a rarity. In order to maintain the tradition, the old masters shared their experience, techniques and methods for engraving and ornamenting. This allowed the unique art to develop and to improve and modern craftsmen to add their achievements to this area of cultural

A Happy Mother – a Healthy Child!

The foundation for a good health is laid before the birth of a child. In our country, high priority is therefore given to the programme for maternal and child health care and family reproductive health. Reproductive health issues were first addressed on a global scale at the 1994 International Conference on Population and Development in Cairo. The participants urged to put women’s reproductive health and rights at the centre of the global and national development agenda. Thanks to the unceasing concern of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov for the health of mothers and new-born babies, the women reproductive health indicators, including maternal health, are steadily improving in Turkmenistan.
