BAKU, Azerbaijan, May 12. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) plans to significantly increase economic activity in Turkmenistan through the implementation of a new trade facilitation project in Central Asia, told Trend.
"USAID has officially launched a project aimed at trade cooperation between Central Asian countries. In addition to Turkmenistan, USAID will hold regional events in four more Central Asian countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan," the organization said.
The expansion of Turkmenistan's trade relations with the rest of the Central Asian region will lead to a significant increase in economic activity in this country.
