The President instructed to thoroughly prepare for celebrations of the Day of Neutrality and the New Year

President Berdymukhammedov held a video conference with khyakims of velayats and the city of Ashgabat. Each of them was authorized by the President to organize top level large-scale celebrations of the forthcoming holidays � The Day of Neutrality (celebrated on 12 December) and the New Year's Eve.

Let us recall that every year the public sector employees, students and schoolchildren are urged to celebrate the New Year's Eve in front of the city's main Christmas tree. They are sent to the Christmas tree in the afternoon and are not dispersed until the President congratulates each velayat on the night of 1 January by a teleconference bridge, installed on the square.
