Turkmenistan is preparing a state program for the development of the digital economy from 2021 through 2025, Trend reports with reference to the State News Agency of Turkmenistan.

The adoption of the new program involves making changes and additions to existing legislative acts in the field of digitalization, defining tasks in order to create an electronic government system, improving digital education and healthcare, training personnel, as well as gradually placing digital services on a single portal of public services.

The action plan for the implementation of the program defines specific deadlines for the implementation of the tasks and their performers.

Turkmenistan is working on the introduction of information and communication technologies (ICT) in all sectors of the national economy.

The acceleration of work in this direction will be facilitated by the creation of a geo-information center, which will analyze and store information about all objects of Turkmenistan's urban infrastructure.

The introduction of ICT into Turkmenistan's economy will facilitate its diversification.

The concept of the development of the digital economy in Turkmenistan until 2025 is also aimed at economic diversification.
