The adoption of the planned version of the Law of Turkmenistan "On State Policy on Age" is one of the clear examples of this. We named 2023 as the "Year of Arkadag Serdarly Happy Youth" in order to round up such important activities, spread the domestic and foreign policy of our country, spread it to the world, and educate the young generation in the spirit of patriotism and pride in our great times. This slogan, which has been warmly supported by our people, summarizes the important role of youth in society, the high trust shown to the young generation, and national pride.

Brave sons of the dear Motherland!

In my speech at the inauguration ceremony of the President of Turkmenistan, I said that we will make every effort to strengthen the material base of our national Armed Forces, other military and law enforcement agencies, and improve the living conditions of military personnel. Within the framework of the military reforms successfully implemented during the revival of the new era of a stable state, the living, working, and working conditions of the defenders of the Motherland and their family members will be further improved. Our national army will be constantly provided with advanced combat weapons, military equipment, digital system capabilities, new, modern residential buildings with all amenities, military camps will be built and put into use.

In October 2022, the successful conduct of the joint military field training of the Armed Forces of the country and other troops at the naval training center located in Turkmenbashi Etrap of the Balkan Velayat raised the burden on the country's defenders even more. Modernizing the material and equipment base of the country's military and law enforcement agencies, creating more favorable conditions for the service and recreation of the National Guard will be one of the priority directions of the state policy and the ongoing military reforms in the year of Arkadag Serdarly Bakhtyur.
