President Berdimuhamedov, who is on a working visit to New York, received representatives of American companies Boeing and John Deere, who have been successfully cooperating with Turkmenistan for many years.
In the light of the initiatives of the Turkmen leader on reforming the country’s agro-industrial complex, voiced on September 25 at the first meeting of the Halk Maslakhaty (People’s Council), questions were raised at Berdimuhamedov’s meeting with the head of the division of agricultural machinery company John Deere Mark von Pentz.
The agro-industrial complex, which is developing rapidly in Turkmenistan, assumes a wide scope for strengthening interaction with the leading producers of agricultural machinery. John Deere, which has a positive experience of cooperation with Turkmenistan, obviously remains one of the country’s key partners in the issue of technological support for a new stage of reforms in the agro-industrial complex.
As it became known at a recent government meeting, Turkmenistan will acquire three new aircrafts produced by Boeing for the needs of civil aviation. In this context, President Berdimuhamedov’s meeting with Brian Lopp, the director of international sales of the company, was a confirmation of Boeing’s interest in developing cooperation with Turkmenistan.
The consistently modernizing air fleet of the country is designed to improve the quality and culture of servicing of passengers who use the services of Turkmen airlines around the world. Cooperation with Boeing serves for Turkmenistan as an opportunity to implement its huge transit potential, increasing passenger flows and cargo turnover.
