President of Turkmenistan addresses participants of the International Agricultural Forum

I congratulate you on the opening of the Exhibition of Achievements of Agricultural Sector and the International Scientific Conference "Achieved Milestones and Tasks in Seed Production in Turkmenistan". Undoubtedly, the forum will open up wide opportunities for acquainting with the achievements of our country in the agrarian sector and sharing experience with foreign countries, said President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov in his address.

We have launched a large-scale work aimed at ensuring the integrated science-based development of agriculture and its transformation into one of the most profitable sectors. Advanced technologies, rich agricultural experience of our ancestors in combination with the developments of modern science are systematically introduced into production.

All necessary conditions have been created in our country so that each citizen, including agricultural workers, working consciously, can live well.

Due to the fact that our agricultural workers are regularly provided with modern agricultural equipment, mineral fertilizers, high-quality seeds and chemical pest control agents at preferential rates, rich crops of wheat, cotton, vegetables, melons and fruits are grown in the country. It should be noted that the maintenance of agricultural machinery is also carried out at low prices, and the settlement of payments for the products delivered are made immediately. All this contributes to the achievement of food abundance in the country, the message says.

We will continue applying every effort to ensure progressive development of this industry. We will continue improving the labor and living conditions for agricultural workers, implementing agricultural reforms, increasing crop yields. We will purchase high-performance machinery and equipment from global manufacturers, develop virgin lands, and resolve the issues of arable land reclamation.

I am confident that the exhibition and the international scientific conference will provide a platform for popularizing the achievements in the agricultural sector and seed production, for sharing experience with foreign experts, developing mutually beneficial cooperation in this area, - emphasized the President of Turkmenistan in his address.
