Absent is a world-famous horse

Absent is a horse that has left an indelible mark in the history of the Olympic Games. This beautiful black horse was born in 1952 in Taraz (former Jambyl), Kazakhstan. The genealogy of the horse originates from the unique horses that have been bred for millennia on the Turkmen soil. Born from the horses Arab and Bakkara, Absent was descended from the famous horse Boynav (born in 1885). In 1955–1968, Absent left a significant mark in equestrian sports. At the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy in Moscow in 1958, Absent was awarded a Level I Certificate for beauty among the Ahalteke horses. Absent took second place in the 1958 European Show Jumping Championships in Aachen, Germany. A year later, the horse won a gold medal at the Spartakiad of the Peoples of the USSR and the title of champion of the USSR.

Modern sports facilities

Excellent conditions are created for the education of physically and mentally healthy generations in our country. The modern facilities built in different corners of the country are of great importance in encouraging young people to do physical culture and sports. The modern infrastructure projects in the capital and in the Velayat centres ensure excellent conditions for the residents to do sports and to follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle. The Olympic Village in the capital, the sports complex in the Avaza National Tourist Zone, the sports facilities in the Velayat centres and Etraps demonstrate this fact.

The values of the Turkmen people

The Ahalteke horses are one of the sacred, world-famous, and glorious values of the Turkmen people. This truth is reflected in the fact that the horse is depicted in the center of the State Emblem of Turkmenistan. Thus, the glory of the Ahalteke horses has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. The history of our ‘heavenly’ horses has a worthy place in the national literature and in the works of other peoples. Besides other features of the Turkmen horses, they provide a lot of information on their beauty, endurance and strength.

The youth on the way to perfection

Impressive work is underway in the field of education and youth policy, as well as in other spheres in our independent, permanently neutral Motherland. To date, young patriotic, honest, well-educated and skilful professionals are the guarantors of a happy future for our country. Thus, the laws, decrees, and special programmes, including in the Foreign Languages Teaching Concept, related to science and education, have been adopted in Turkmenistan. The foreign languages become more important in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state, when the economic potential of our country grows and international cooperation expands. This fact demonstrates that languages represent an important part of understanding, move beyond the role of communication and make rapid progress. Turkmen State Architecture and Construction Institute conducts effective work to prepare physically and mentally healthy, skilful young professionals.

The source of wellness

The countries that pay great attention to the young generations are considered the most powerful nations in the world. Turkmenistan has great confidence in the youth and creates excellent conditions to educate well-developed, patriotic and skilful young professionals. Health provides joy and inspiration to a person. People need basic physical activity to be healthy. It means that sport is the best way to wellness and the source of inspiration and beauty. Our country pays great attention to sport as a priority of the state policy. The development and promotion of the mass physical culture and health movement is the key to achieving physical and mental well-being of the younger generations.

Bicycle means ecology and wellness

Great achievements have been made in health and ecology, as well as in other spheres in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. These achievements are recognized by the world community and international organizations. The concern for health and a healthy lifestyle is reflected in the state programmes, the Laws of Turkmenistan, the large-scale construction of medical institutions, sports facilities, the expansion of the sanatorium and recreation system, and in the social, economic and spiritual development of the people.

Success of international initiatives

The Resolution ‘Integration of mainstream bicycling into public transportation systems for sustainable development’ was adopted at the 61st plenary meeting of the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly at the initiative of Turkmenistan. With the adoption of the document, the UN declares that the global community recognizes and fully supports international measures such as promoting the importance of bicycles in society and organizing cycling rides as important means of physical and mental health. This fact demonstrates that Turkmenistan successfully pursues the state policy aimed at strengthening peace, friendship and fruitful cooperation in the region and in the world.

The basis for health and friendship

The concern of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov for the healthy, spiritual development of the younger generations, and for the modern education and upbringing in our country has a great importance in the year, held under the motto ‘the Era of the People with Arkadag’. The UN General Assembly adopted the Resolution ‘Integration of mainstream bicycling into public transportation systems for sustainable development’, co-authored by 62 countries, at the 61st plenary meeting of its 76th Session at the initiative of Turkmenistan on March 15 this year. The adoption of the Resolution demonstrated that the wide range of opportunities created in our country for the physical and spiritual development of our people, especially children and youth, bears fruits. The UN General Assembly has declared June 3 as the World Bicycle Day by adopting a Resolution, which was initiated by Turkmenistan, during the 82 plenary meeting of its 72 Session on April 12, 2018. That fact evidenced the complete international support to the initiatives of our country aimed at strengthening of peace, friendship and fruitful cooperation through sport.

Nature and nation

Nature and its beauties serve as the first source of inspiration for the daily needs and essential interests of humanity. A clean, comfortable environment provides the key opportunities for the human health, for the development of talents and life, and for the increase in life expectancy. The mass tree-planting campaigns represent a modern continuation of national customs and ancient horticultural traditions related to the wise approach to natural resources, which contributes to the close relationships between the environment and society.

New epoch brings new inspiration

The Turkmen students are happy to witness many events written in the letters of gold on the history of our country in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. In the speech at the inauguration ceremony held at the Ruhyet Palace in the capital on March 19, the popularly elected President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov noted, ‘In the sphere of education, digital technologies will be widely used, distance learning and data exchange will be carried out. These measures will raise the level of the educational process at the domestic institutions of higher education to one of the highest in the world’. These historical words are directly attributed to students and assign great responsibility to them. As the scholars say, the world of science and education is the enlightening power of the future goals, existence and life of every human being.

Turkmenistan is a sports country

In the years of independence, Turkmenistan has established the physical culture and sports movements and has contributed to international cooperation in this sphere. To implement this policy, our country built and put into operation multifunctional stadiums, physical education and health complexes, hippodromes, sports schools, and similar facilities in all regions. The methods of training athletes and specialists have been improved in our country. Turkmenistan has gathered wide experience of holding sports events, and the Turkmen athletes successfully perform at international events. Since January 1, 2012, Turkmenistan Sport TV channel has been covering the achievements in physical culture and sport under the motto ‘Turkmenistan is a Country of Health and Inspiration’ to promote the principles of a healthy lifestyle. Despite the climatic conditions, Turkmenistan has created excellent opportunities for winter sports. The Winter Sports Complex has been built in Ashgabat, and the Multifunctional Sports Complex in the Avaza National Tourist Zone has large ice rinks. The national hockey championship has been held in our country for several years; and figure skating and short-track speed skating are being actively developed.

When Nowruz comes to the world...

In early spring, the Turkmen steppe turns into a lush green meadow. The sounds of lambs, the sweet melodies of birds – all of this heralds the beginning of spring, the queen of the seasons. Thus, Nowruz is the New Year. On the first day of the New Year, our people give their best wishes. Our compatriots pray for peace, prosperity, health and unity of the people, and well-being of the country. On Nowruz, people talk about honesty and start important affairs. After Nowruz, farmers sow seeds into the fertile soil and pray for rich crop.

National Spring Holiday

The promotion of the principles of a healthy lifestyle is one of the highest achievements of the President of Turkmenistan in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. In this context, the Turkmen leader emphasizes that the recognition of Turkmenistan as a sports power is our greatest achievement in the years of independence. In the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state, the ancient spiritual and moral values and traditions of our people are cherished under the wise leadership of the President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. In this context, the National Spring Holiday has a special place in the cultural life of our people. The International Day of Nowruz is a celebration of spiritual upbringing and beauty. The National Spring Holiday, as well as the traditions, literary works, folk games, and wedding dishes of the Turkmen people, date back to ancient times. We heartily congratulate the Turkmen leader and our beloved people on the International Day of Nowruz. We wish the President of Turkmenistan a sound health, long life and success for the benefit of our Motherland!

Turkmenistan is a blossoming garden

Our country has turned into a blossoming garden, and besides the natural beauty of our Motherland, great efforts are made to ensure ecological balance. In this context, great work is underway in the frameworks of the National Climate Change Strategy of Turkmenistan and the National Forestry Programme of Turkmenistan, developed thanks to the great concern of the President of Turkmenistan. Besides, the traditional tree-planting campaign should be noted. Thus, artificial forest belts and parks are spread all over our beloved Motherland. These green zones have become an integral part of nature, impressing the guests of our country.

Alabay is our cultural heritage

The President of Turkmenistan has great respect for our cultural values and emphasizes that alabay is the wealth of our Motherland, a national value created by our ancestors, that our duty is to preserve it and pass it on to the future generations with all its splendour. Large-scale work is underway to maintain the purity of the breed and to increase the number of alabays last years. The Turkmen Alabay International Association was established; the Turkmen alabay breeding centres were built and put into operation in the regions of our country to preserve, protect and train alabays. These facts demonstrate the deep respect for national values thanks to the concern of the President of Turkmenistan in our great epoch.

The President of Turkmenistan noted, ‘Special attention should be paid to sport when it comes to maintaining a person’s physical and mental health. Sport helps control temper, improve skills and discover talents’. The Turkmen leader is a perfect example for our people, especially the younger generation, in doing different sports. To date, students do sports on a regular basis and follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle. It should be noted that excellent conditions are created for this purpose. A wide range of opportunities is available for students to do different sports in their spare time.

Respect for our national values

Only a healthy person can think comprehensively. Achievements in science, education and sports demonstrate that the minds of the Turkmen youth are healthy and perfect. The subject and Internet Olympiads, creative competitions, the national and international sports tournaments are important events that improve the skills of the Turkmen youth on the path to perfection. These competitions help to discover new talents each year. The President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov has recently visited the Ahalteke Equestrian Complex of the President of Turkmenistan. At the venue, the Turkmen leader watched the ‘heavenly’ horses and engaged in creative writing. The President of Turkmenistan noted that, as they say ‘At – myrat’ (‘Horse – purpose’), and the art of horse breeding is enriched. The Turkmen leader emphasized that special significance is attached to the ‘heavenly’ horses and their purity, and expressed his gratitude to horse breeders for their great work.

Health is the most valuable wealth

To date, the world community recognizes the positive results of the work carried out for the development of this principle at new level under the wise leadership of the President of Turkmenistan in the epoch of might and happiness. The Turkmen leader said: ‘The health of people is the wealth of the country. Turkmenistan pays great attention to the development of mass physical education, the Olympic movement, and sports in the epoch of might and happiness. Our country has been upholding the principles of our people, such as the upbringing of physically and mentally healthy generations’. These words is a wonderful fact of our life. It was a great pleasure and pride for the Turkmen people to be informed by representatives of the European Regional Office of the World Health Organization, who recently visited Turkmenistan and appreciated the work being done in the field of human health in our country. Foreign experts analysed the work carried out in the frameworks of the Saglyk State Programme developed by the Turkmen leader, primarily in the field of sanitation and disease prevention, laboratory diagnostics, clinical examination of patients, prevention and control and praised the efforts of Turkmenistan. This fact evidenced that the principle ‘the state is for the people!’ is successful. As is known, the mass physical education and sports are very important in protecting, strength

Wellness is the source of happiness

To date, the national institutions of higher education attach great significance to physical education and sports as an integral part of the upbringing of physically and mentally healthy, purposeful, and determined young people. Special sports clubs for students function in all national institutions of higher education, including in Turkmen Agricultural University named after S.A.Niyazov. Futsal, basketball, and volleyball groups are among the most popular interests of students. In this context, the Hasyl football team of our institution of higher education successfully performs in different competitions.

Young people earn the trust

A historic event in the socio-political life of our country took place on February 11, 2022.

The Turkmen leader highlighted the need to attract young leaders to public administration and to provide them with comprehensive support in the new epoch at the meeting of the Halk Maslahaty of the Milli Gengesh of Turkmenistan.

Excellent opportunities are created for young people to occupy and work on managerial positions in our country. In this context, the instructions and personal example of the Turkmen leader, who has an outstanding career and rich life experience, are the perfect guideline for the Turkmen youth. The Turkmen people are sincerely proud and supportive of the initiative to entrust young leaders who can fulfil their high responsibilities with dignity.
