SAMARKAND SCO SUMMIT: Dialogue and Cooperation in the Interconnected World

The chairmanship of Uzbekistan in the SCO fell on a dynamic period, rather full of various events and trends – a period of “historical break”, when one era ends and another, still unpredictable and unknown, begins. The modern system of international cooperation, based on universal principles and norms, is beginning to break significantly. One of the main reasons for this is a deep crisis of confidence at the global level, which, in turn, provokes geopolitical confrontation and the risks of reviving stereotypes of bloc thinking. This process of mutual exclusion makes it difficult for the global economy to resume its natural course and for global supply chains to recover.

Media forum: New horizons of cooperation in the context of global initiatives of Turkmenistan

The other day, the conference hall of the State Committee of Turkmenistan on Television, Radio Broadcasting and Cinematography hosted a media forum entitled “International Initiatives of Turkmenistan: New Horizons of Cooperation”, devoted to the results of the International Ministerial Transport Conference of Landlocked Developing Countries and events timed to coincide with it. The main goal of the Forum, held in Turkmen, Russian and English, was to consider the role of the media in further strengthening international cooperation. One of the main topics discussed was the significance of new constructive initiatives put forward by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov at the International Conference held with great success in the Avaza national tourism zone on August 15-16.

New Horizons of Transport Opportunities

Strategic guidelines and priorities for integration into global transport flows were discussed at the high-level meetings in the Avaza national tourism zone. Transport development is of crucial importance in modern conditions. Today, the recognition of Turkmenistan’s contribution to international cooperation is becoming increasingly obvious, as illustrated by the adoption of the UN Resolutions at the initiative of our country. The policy of Turkmenistan, aimed at promoting continuous and consistent partnerships, was recognised by the countries participating in the forum:

Sea of Peace, Stability and Partnership

Since 2006, five Caspian Sea states, including Turkmenistan have observed the Caspian Sea Day on August 12. International meetings, scientific conferences, roundtables of environmental scientists, youth events and environmental actions are held to mark this date. Turkmenistan that is committed to maintaining peace and cooperation in the Caspian Sea region promotes a constructive dialogue based on respect for national interests of all parties and joint efforts in the implementation of promising regional projects on the entire spectrum of Caspian Sea issues. The illustrative examples include the Caspian Environment Programme (CEP), which was implemented in several stages from 1998 to 2010. The main outcome of the Programme is the adoption of the Framework Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment of the Caspian Sea (Tehran Convention), which for a long time remained the only legal document obligatory for all the Caspian Sea states (the Caspian Sea Day marks the adoption of the Tehran Convention). One of the proposals of our country is to revive the CEP in a new format, taking into account modern realities and the newly adopted five-sided documents, in particular, the Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea.

President of Turkmenistan put forward new international initiatives in the field of transport

President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov has put forward new international initiatives in the transport sector for landlocked countries. The head of state spoke about them in a video message to the participants of the International Ministerial Transport Conference of Landlocked Developing Countries, which opened on Monday in the city of Turkmenbashi on the Turkmen coast of the Caspian Sea.

Meeting with the Secretary General of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf

Meeting with the Secretary General of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf On August 1, 2022, in the Avaza National Tourist Zone, a meeting was held between the Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkmenistan, as well as the Deputy Prime Ministers in charge of the fuel and energy complex, trade and services, the Director General of the Transport and Communications Agency under the Cabinet of Ministers with Nayef Falah Mubarak Al-Hajraf, Secretary General of the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf.

The President of Turkmenistan Conducts a Working Meeting Via the Digital System

President Serdar Berdimuhamedov conducted a working meeting via the digital system with the participation of the Deputy Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers A. Yazmyradov, who is in charge of the agroindustrial complex, and hyakims of the velayats, at which the progress of seasonal field work in the country and issues of the socioeconomic development of the regions were discussed. First, the head of state gave the floor to the hyakim of the Ahal velayat Ya. Gurbanov who reported on the measures taken to organise the wheat harvesting without losses and timely settlements with grain growers for the harvest and on the ploughing of the land after harvesting in accordance with agro-technical requirements.

Caspian Sea is a Space of Opportunities

The Sixth Caspian Summit, successfully held in Ashgabat, became a significant political event in the context of further strengthening and developing good-neighbourly and friendly relations among the Caspian states. The activities carried out in the Caspian region by the coastal states ensure the peaceful development of this region, sustainable socioeconomic growth and environmental wellbeing. Stating the importance of the issues discussed by the heads of state at the Sixth Caspian Summit, the esteemed President Serdar Berdimuhamedov expressed confidence that the outcome of the Ashgabat Summit would be a worthy contribution to the successful promotion of multi-vector cooperation in the Caspian region and would contribute to bringing it to a qualitatively new level. At the same time, the decisions made are also important on a global scale. The Caspian Sea and the Caspian region as a whole occupy a strategically important position on the continent. The North–South and East–West transport corridors intersect here. Thus, the Caspian region is considered a special segment of the global geo-economic space, which necessitates the integration of the transport potentials of Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan and Russia.

Transport Diplomacy in Action

In January this year, the Transport Diplomacy Programme of the President of Turkmenistan for 2022–2025 was adopted. It provides for strategically important measures aimed at developing and effectively implementing Turkmenistan’s potential in this area and further strengthening the position of Turkmenistan as a regional hub of transnational transport and transit corridors. Government agencies, educational institutions and private sector actors are involved in the implementation of the action plan of the Programme. Paying special attention to the realisation of the logistics potential of our country that has an advantageous geopolitical location and is a link among the countries that lie along the route of the Great Silk Road, as part of the implementation of the Transport Diplomacy Programme initiated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Transport and Communications Agency under the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan, the heads of diplomatic missions of Turkmenistan in foreign countries with the heads of the Turkmen Logistics National Association and the Transport and Logistics Centre of Turkmenistan OJSC held an online working meeting.

Turkmenistan – WTO: prospects for cooperation

The achievements of Turkmenistan in foreign economic activity, closely related to the strategic plans of socioeconomic development, contributed to the country’s entry into the world market. At this stage, an essential role is played by efforts aimed at the effective inclusion of the national economy in the system of world economic relations and the realisation of the economic advantages associated with this. An important tool for achieving this goal is the development of cooperation with the World Trade Organisation. International practice shows that in the development of a country, foreign economic activity has a significant impact on the entire economic system, stimulating domestic manufacturing industries to produce a variety of high-quality and competitive products. And thus, in modern conditions, the consistent integration of Turkmenistan into the world trading system is an important factor in developing market relations, building up and diversifying the country’s export potential and increasing its investment attractiveness. And now, due to the growing role of global integration processes in the implementation of foreign economic activity, one of the most important goals of Turkmenistan’s foreign trade policy is accession to the World Trade Organisation.

Export-oriented economic model

Transforming Turkmenistan into a major exporter in the Central Asian region, increasing consistently foreign exchange earnings and enhancing the export potential of all spheres of the economy are the priorities of the economic strategy of our distinguished President Gurbanguly ­Berdimuhamedov. The export promotion programme was adopted to achieve these objectives and to implement state support measures in this area. The programme continues to be implemented successfully despite the global crisis caused by the pandemic. The achievements in foreign economic activity are a result of the implementation of fundamental reforms in all sectors of the economy. The leader of the nation emphasises the national economic policy should provide for economic structural transformations. This involves increasing the production of goods that meet international standards, enhancing state support for small businesses, the development of which will help increase the production of high-quality products, prioritising the development of export-oriented enterprises that produce the goods from local raw materials and digitalising all sectors.

Transport and transit corridors: International Cooperation Prospects

On August 23 of the current year, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov launched the construction of new wells at the world’s largest gas field, Galkynyş. This underground field contains the largest gas deposits, and it is from there that the Turkmenistan–China gas pipeline begins its journey. Our country possesses rich energy resources, the export of which, together with its favourable geographical position, makes Turkmenistan an outpost of international cooperation. And such an example is the Turkmenistan–China transnational gas pipeline, which has become an indisputable fact of international energy partnership and the wise foreign economic policy of the national leader.
