Turkmenistan, Ashgabat, Feb. 26 / Trend , E. Hasanov/
Uzbekistan is interested in cooperating with Turkmenistan to develop tourism on the Caspian Sea coastline.
"Uzbekistan intends to participate in the construction of the Avaza national tourism zone," the Alatin Asir television channel quoted Uzbek President Islam Karimov as saying at a meeting with Turkmen President Gurbanguli Berdimuhammedov in Tashkent.
The Uzbekturizm national company and Turkmen State Tourism and Sports Committee signed a tourism cooperation agreement at the end of the meeting.
"The international-class resort will appear in the Avaza area of the Caspian in the coming years. Millions of dollars are being invested. The Caspian coastline will attract tourists due to the favorable climate, sandy beaches, lagoons, historical and cultural monuments and ethnic traditions," Berdimuhammedov said earlier.
Under Turkmen presidential decree, the best beaches with a width of 1.5 kilometers have been selected to create the zone. The beach will extend 16 kilometers. The resort will cover an area of 1,700 hectares. The resorts will include a stadium, trade and business center, and Magic World entertainment and water park.
