Turkmenistan’s women to be presented with $3

In the course of the government session held on President Gurbanguly Berdymukhammedov charged Deputy Prime Minister overseeing economy and finance Gadyrgeldi Mushshikov with the task of presenting Turkmenistan's women with monetary gifts in the amount of 60 manats (about $3 at the black market rate) in honour of the International Women's Day.

It should be emphasized that the gift will be presented to employed women, female students and those who receive retirement benefits and other allowances. The girls who do not attend kindergartens or unemployed women with no children under 3 years old (who are not entitled to any allowances) will not receive any gifts as the funds must be allocated from the budgets of the organization which pay salaries, pension benefits or other allowances.
