By Huseyn Hasanov - Trend:

Turkmen President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov received the director general of French company CIFAL, Gilles Remy, the Turkmen government said on Thursday.

The businessman expressed deep interest in actively participating in the country's national and regional projects initiated by Turkmenistan.

'The French company's growing interest in strengthening its positions in the promising Turkmen market is mainly stipulated by an open door policy pursued by the Turkmen leader and broad business cooperation with major foreign companies and investors', according to the statement.

The fuel and energy, construction and transport sectors and in particular civil aviation are among the promising areas.

Earlier it was reported that the company began to pay attention to agriculture and in particular the cotton industry.

In general, French companies in Turkmenistan have been widely represented in such areas as construction, transport, tourism, energy and space technology. Among the companies operating here are VINCI Construction, Bouygues and Thales International amongst others.
