Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Nov. 14
By Huseyn Hasanov - Trend:
Turkmenistan's President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov signed decrees Nov. 14 on staff changes in the government.
By the documents, Alladurdy Pellayev was appointed the deputy chairman of the Turkmen oil and gas construction state concern Turkmennebitgazgurlushyk, and Nepes Gaylyev will serve as the deputy textile industry minister.
At this stage, the oil and gas construction concern, jointly with the state concern Turkmengas, is realizing a project for construction of Turkmenistan's longest highway - the 'East-West' highway, to be commissioned in 2015.
Such a link, aside from the existing networks, may provide raw materials to the actively discussed Trans-Caspian gas pipeline, which can run through the Caspian seabed to Azerbaijan's coast. From Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan's gas can potentially proceed to the markets in Turkey and Europe.
Turkmenistan's textile industry, for its part, is developing through the growth of domestic processing of the grown cotton.
Every year, the country harvests over one million metric tons of raw materials.
Meanwhile, the finished products are sold through the worldwide sales network, WalMart.
