Large-scale construction ongoing throughout the country as part of the implementation of comprehensive socio-economic programs initiated by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov has resulted in ever-increasing demands for high-quality building products, having given impetus to the rapid development pace of production thereof from local raw materials. It is today one of the leading objectives of industrializing the national economy, based on the advances in world science and practice.
Special attention of the exhibition guests and participants was attracted by new architectural projects, which showed models of administrative and office complexes, shopping and entertainment centers, residential houses of superior comfort to be built in the near future. The exhibition is of interest not only for specialists, but also for a great number of residents and guests of the capital. Such a representative sectoral show was a wonderful opportunity for them to look into the future of the country, to imagine how the streets of Turkmen cities and villages will look like in the near future thanks to the latest technologies.
The domestic private construction sector, which has carried out large-scale projects in recent years, is especially widely represented. Thanks to the unabated attention of the President of Turkmenistan to development of this sector of the national economy, entrepreneurial activity has become one of the most effective areas in the construction industry.
Speaking about the importance of building up the potential of the building industry through the introduction of innovations and modern technologies, the head of state outlined the successful implementation of the Smart City and Smart Home projects, as well as housing construction using technological developments in the field of regenerative energy sources, among the priority objectives.
In this context, it should be noted that the architectural model of the Ashgabat City mega-project has become a highlight of the exhibition.
This is a project of a large residential area, the construction of which is planned in the northern side of the Turkmen capital, will become the embodiment of the “smart city” concept. The organization of life in the new megalopolis was initially based on digital control systems, robotic and intelligent networks.
A special significance is attached to development of the construction and industrial complex in large-scale state programs, including the Program “Revival of the New Epoch of the Powerful State: the National Program for Socio-Economic Development of Turkmenistan in 2022-2052”.
In accordance with the targets set by President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, new villages are being built in all regions of our country, which have become a reflection of the creative spirit of the present epoch. A vivid example in this respect is the large-scale construction work that is in full swing today in the new modern administrative center of the Akhal Velayat.
Today, Turkmen companies are rapidly adopting and applying world advances in the field of construction, when designing and building modern offices, residential areas, and large industrial, social and cultural facilities.
At the same time, individual enterprises of the country have launched the production of dozens of types of building materials that meet international quality standards. This is clearly illustrated by the stand of the “Derýaplastik” Business Entity, the plants of which manufacture more than 1500 types of high-quality import-substituting products that are in demand both in our country and abroad. These include hundreds of types of pipes, cables, suspended ceilings, shapes for windows and doors, and other materials made of polyethylene, polypropylene and polyvinyl chloride, widely used in public utilities and construction.
A number of exhibitors such as “Ajaýyp gurluşyk”, “Ussat inžener”, “Ugurly ýol”, “Ak bulut”, “Berk menzil”, “Sapaly jaý”, “Aga gurluşyk”, “Myradym”, “Weli gurluşyk”, “Kämil ymarat” and others demonstrate the capabilities of the private sector in the construction industry.
The stands reflecting the projects of facilities, the construction of which requires special engineering and technical solutions and the application of the latest technologies, including autobahns, bridges, overpasses, underpasses and multi-level interchanges on the most important highways of the country, aroused increased interest among exhibition visitors.

The State Corporation “Türkmengeologiýa” and the State Concern “Türkmenhimiýa” are closely related by the nature of their activities. The President of Turkmenistan pays special attention to increasing the capacity of the chemical industry, which is reflected in the Program on Socio-Economic Development of the Country for 2022-2028.
The production of various fertilizers to fully meet the demand in growing domestic agriculture and the strengthening of food security are priority development areas for this industry. Natural resources, impressive reserves of hydrocarbon and hydrogen sulfide raw materials, the latest technologies being introduced for processing and production of finished goods are the factors that have provided an opportunity to significantly expand the range and increase mineral production.
Professionals and foreign experts paid special attention to the products of the “Garabogazkarbamid” plant. The Turkmen Bay of Garabogazkol is one of the few sites on the planet where sodium sulfate and other valuable salt minerals crystallize on an industrial scale under natural conditions.
In consideration of the rich potential of the Balkan Velayat, in particular, the hydro-mineral resources of the Garabogazkol Bay, there are great prospects for the integrated adoption of new production practices in terms of import-substituting chemical products. Work is underway at the Kiyanly polymer plant to launch the production of demanded chemicals.
The development dynamics of the electric power industry is demonstrated by the large-scale projects being carried out on the initiative of the President of Turkmenistan, in particular, to create a ring energy system of the country. Along with this, dozens of power distribution substations have been built in recent years, and the renovation of the power supply and lighting system of the capital, other cities and towns is in progress.
