Heads of key economic ministries and departments of Turkmenistan have been appointed. Relevant decisions were taken by President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov at an expanded meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on the results of 2018, as reported by the news program “Vatan” of Turkmen television.
By decrees of the head of state, Tahyrberdi Durkhanov was appointed Minister of Industry and Communication, Resul Redzhepov – Minister of Textile Industry, Magtymuly Bayramdurdyyev – Minister of Agriculture and Environmental Protection, and Annageldi Yazmyradov – Chairman of the State Water Management Committee of Turkmenistan.
With the exception of the Ministry of Textile Industry, the remaining ministries and departments were formed a few days ago as a result of structural changes in the country’s economy. These structures will use in their work new approaches, and, respectively, the expectations from their work are great. They are a kind of “pioneer” on the way to the market economy of Turkmenistan. The course of market reforms in the Turkmen economy will depend on how things go with them.
It must be assumed that their experience of the transformation will be used in other sectors of the economy. This imposes great responsibility on new departments.
