Achievements in the youth policy

The Turkmen people have cherished their unique traditions and principles from the times of Oguz Han and have preserved them for the future generations. To date, our beloved people pay special attention to the younger generations, who are the future of the country, and educate them in the national spirit. The noble traditions of our ancestors are being worthily cherished by the National Leader of the Turkmen people and the President of Turkmenistan in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state.

Useful plant

The flora of the Turkmen nature, which includes mountains, plains, seas, rivers, deserts, and lakes, is the backbone of the national economy, especially the industrial sector. One of the plants is liquorice, widely distributed in the valleys of the Amu Darya River. The liquorice root is considered a cure for thousands ailments. There are thirteen species of this plant in the world; four of them grow on the Turkmen soil. Two species of liquorice are of industrial importance, namely, Glycyrrhiza glabra and Glycyrrhiza uralensis. Liquorice has been considered a valuable plant since ancient times. The medicinal value of its root was discovered in the ancient Chinese medicine 2800 years ago. The famous Greek physician Pedanius Dioscorides, who lived in the 1st century AD, named this plant ‘Glycyrrhiza’ referring to the sweetness of its roots.

A competition for the fastest horses

The spring horse racing season was solemnly opened at the Ashgabat Equestrian Sports Complex on April 22 in the year ‘Happy Youth with Arkadag Serdar’. The competitions in different sports and musical performances created a unique festive atmosphere. The exhibition of works created by artists, sculptors, jewellers, and national handicrafts prepared by the Turkmen women were organized at the event to everyone's entertainment.

A favourite book of the youth

The independence of our beloved Motherland is our treasure, which embodies the creative power of large-scale transformations in Turkmenistan, and the unity and integrity of the Turkmen people. Thus, the valuable works on the international legal status of independent, permanently neutral Turkmenistan, on the roots of independence and its historic significance are thoroughly studied by the people. One of such works is the book ‘Independence – Our Happiness’ by the National Leader of the Turkmen people Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. Published in three languages and illustrated with numerous photos, the book describes the achievements made in different fields in the years of independence.

The concern for the younger generations

The valuable recommendations, books, and instructions of the National Leader of the Turkmen people, our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov are an invaluable guide in educating the younger generations, in providing the youth with extensive knowledge and in fostering their love for Motherland and people. They address the most important issues of the present and put forward the important initiatives for the future. Every work and word by our Hero-Arkadag, just like the elixir of life, promotes the development of our nation. The national principles of the Turkmen people play an important role in educating the younger generations. In this context, the works by Magtymguly Pyragy, the great poet and thinker of the Turkmen people, and his life are of particular importance. The poetry by Magtymguly Pyragy represents an inexhaustible treasure for educating the younger generations. The thinker's poems are a classic guide for the youth. They stuck firmly in the minds of young people, inculcating good behaviour in them. The poetry by the great thinker is as wide as the ocean in terms of content. His works have rich meaning, encourage patriotism and high humanism, and inspire people. That is why these poems are universally recognized as invaluable.

The city of the future

The state programmes aimed at promoting the national principles, increasing the economic power, raising the living standards of the people, and accelerating the pace of development of the country are being successfully implemented in Turkmenistan in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. Orders and payments from passengers will be accepted through a digital system using modern devices installed in the state-of-the-art public transport in the city of Arkadag. The digital system will also control the traffic routes and the movement of public transport. Moreover, thanks to the devices installed in the electric buses, special mobile software will provide information about the route lines, name and number of the vehicle, and the time it should arrive at the stop. The applications will be available to all passengers.

Health is the greatest wealth

The wise sayings of our ancestors, including in ‘health is the greatest wealth’, ‘my health is my fortune’, ‘health means everything’, confirm that health has always been of great importance in our people. The human health is considered the main wealth in Turkmenistan. The wide celebration of the World Health Day in our country was another evidence of this fact. Thousands of our compatriots took an active part in mass cycling marathons and sports events to confirm the growing number of supporters of a healthy lifestyle. The transformations aimed at improving the national health system and ensuring the well-being of our compatriots were initiated by the National Leader of the Turkmen people, our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov. To date, they are being successfully implemented under the leadership of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov. Modern health facilities are created in all regions of the country. Within the framework of the health policy, special importance is attached to preventive measures and public awareness activities. Effective meetings are held for the employees of government institutions and enterprises to promote the principles of a healthy lifestyle in Tejen Etrap, Ahal Velayat, on a regular basis. Physical culture and sports are the best means of protecting the health of people of all ages.

Young people earn the trust

The revival of the new epoch of the powerful state is a wonderful time of great concern for young people. The year ‘Happy Youth with Arkadag Serdar’ is another evidence of that fact. This motto inspires the Turkmen youth to take an active part in the implementation of programmes for the prosperity of our Motherland, to strengthen the economic power of the country, and to contribute to the great initiatives that improve the living conditions and raise the spirit of our people. The President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov expressed great trust in the youth who are associated with the progress of the country on the path of great transformations. The suggestions and opinions of young people were considered in the construction of the city of Arkadag, which is being built according to the smart city concept in the beautiful, historic corner of Turkmenistan. Most of the officials of the city are young specialists. At the root of this work is the fact that young people have earned the trust of our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov.

New edition

As is known, the multi-volume encyclopaedic work ‘Medicinal Plants of Turkmenistan’ attracts great interest and popularity in the international medical community. Thus, the English edition of the Volume XIV of this encyclopaedic work by the National Leader of the Turkmen people, the Chairman of the Halk Maslahaty of Turkmenistan, Doctor of Medicine and Professor Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov became another evidence of the international prestige of Turkmenistan.

A volleyball tournament

The Lebap Velayat Open Volleyball Championships was held for the athletes born in 2006–2007. 16 teams competed in the tournament organized at the sports school 10 in Turkmenabat.

A holiday of health

Cycling improves the human health and extends life. The UN General Assembly adopted the Resolution ‘Integration of mainstream bicycling into public transportation systems for sustainable development’ at the 61st plenary meeting of its 76th Session at the initiative of Turkmenistan. World Health Day is celebrated annually on April 7. This holiday includes the measures aimed at protecting the national health and preventing diseases. Cycling marathons are among those measures. They increase significance of the holiday.

A centre of new technologies

Turkmenistan has reached great heights and is looking forward to new horizons of development under the wise leadership of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov. This fact is inextricably linked to the concern for the progress of science and education at the state level. To date, digital technologies are increasingly integrated into our life. The modern services and opportunities, provided in trade, health, transport, and other spheres, are of great importance in improving the welfare of our people.

Achievements in the education system

The achievements of the younger generations are the achievements of our country, which has entered the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. Excellent conditions are created for our young people to receive modern education, to choose their future profession, to make full use of their abilities, and to implement their plans in life. Taking into account the need to prepare qualified professionals to achieve the tasks set in the national education system, a thoughtful approach is taken to this sphere. Excellent opportunities are created in different corners of the country to implement those important tasks. Thanks to these opportunities, the number of students admitted to high and secondary vocational schools is increasing year by year.

Within the important work

Impressive work is underway on environmental protection in our country under the leadership of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov. The policy of Turkmenistan in the field of ecology and environmental protection and the initiatives promoted by the President of Turkmenistan are of great interest to the world community. This fact demonstrates that the positive policy of Turkmenistan in this sphere conforms to the international interests. The urgency of protecting the environment and preventing the climate change is primary due to the fact that these issues are the focus in the region and in the world included in the Sustainable Development Goals.

An inexhaustible treasure of the world literature

Thanks to the concern of our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov, Turkmenistan has become one of the most developed countries widely recognized in the world community. In fact, the Turkmen people are known for their noble qualities of bravery, selflessness, humanitarianism, eloquence, and generosity since ancient times. At those times, the Turkmen people, who lived at the crossroads of the Great Silk Road, were widely known for their fine carpets, beautiful horses, dutars, and vaharman melons.

A valuable guide

Our ancestors had a saying ‘a healthy pear does not fall down the tree’. They knew that health is the most valuable wealth in the human life. That is why they tried to prevent diseases and disorders through various methods. Avicenna (known in the country as Lukman Hekim) devoted most of his life to making medicine for different diseases and left valuable information about protecting the human health in his works. To date, the multi-volume encyclopaedic work ‘Medicinal Plants of Turkmenistan’ by our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov describes thousands of species of medicinal plants growing in our country and their benefits. This work is enough to strengthen the human body, to prevent diseases and to prolong life.

On the eve of the prestigious tournament

The national sambo team of Turkmenistan has recently held the training sessions at the World Sambo Academy in Kstovo, the Russian Federation. The team included 24 athletes. The event took place on March 10–24. After the training sessions, the national sambo team of Turkmenistan will compete in the Sambo Founders Cup to be held in Moscow. The prestigious tournament will become an important part of preparation for the 2025 World Sambo Championships to be held in the Turkmen capital.

The builders of the future

The harmonious development of all sectors of the national economy and the bright future of the people depend on the smart, educated, moral and cultured younger generations with broad worldview. That is why there is great concern at the state level for the development of young people into successful individuals in Turkmenistan. Impressive work is underway to implement the state youth policy in the year ‘Happy Youth with Arkadag Serdar’. We will work tirelessly to promote the content and importance of the state youth policy put forward in our beloved country under the wise leadership of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov.

The main goals and principles of the Turkmen youth are to study, learn, create and justify the trust for the great future of our Motherland and for the happiness of our people.

Tree means life and wealth

The tree-planting traditions are considered a sacred duty in Turkmenistan. Those traditions are cherished in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. The spring tree-planting campaign in the country is a worthy continuation of the ecological attitude that has become a noble tradition. At the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers held on March 10, the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov signed the Decree on holding a nationwide tree-planting campaign in Turkmenistan. According to the document, to turn the country into a blossoming garden, to enhance the beauty of its nature and to implement the National Forestry Programme of Turkmenistan for 2021–2025, it is planned to plant 3 million seedlings of various trees and vines throughout the country this year. Of these, 1.5 million were planted during the spring planting campaign.
