From May 1, Turkmen officials will learn the basics of the digital economy

The Academy of Public Administration under the President of Turkmenistan organized special courses to teach the basics of the digital economy to managers at all levels of government departments. This was reported by Purli Agamyradov, deputy prime minister in charge of science, education, health and sports, at a government meeting, on Friday, April 19.

The courses will explain to officials the features and opportunities offered by new technologies. The pilot course has already been recruited and will start on May 1st and last for 1 month. Among the first listeners are representatives of the parliament, ministries and departments, the Ashgabat hyakimlik.

The training will include theoretical studies on the legal provision of the transition to a digital economy, information and communication technologies, security and other subjects.

The practical part is planned to be taught according to the case-study method – students will understand the real economic, social and business situations. For each of the officials to be able to more fully explore their field of activity, they will be divided by industry.

From June 3rd, the program will be launched in the regions. The possibility of holding short-term courses for government employees is also being considered.
