The Balkan region of Turkmenistan is conditioned by its weather and natural features, transport and geographical location, rich and diverse mineral resources, availability of industrial facilities, including its opportunities for the development of resort complex.
This region is an industrially developed part of Turkmenistan. The construction of new iodine-bromine plants in the Balkan province, a plant for the production of caustic soda, chlorine and chlorine products will help to increase the volume of Turkmen products exported.
The western region of the country plays an important role in the development of Turkmenistan's transport and communications system. The high-tech “North-South” transport corridor, the modernized International Seaport of Turkmenbashi contribute to the increase in the number of passengers and freight, improve the quality and security of communication services, expand production capacity and add to the efficient use of available production facilities, increasing the competitiveness in domestic and foreign markets.
The development of a world-class resort complex on the seashore of the Caspian Sea is one of the priorities of the long-term goals of Turkmenistan's socio-economic development strategy. It is aimed at realizing the country's vast natural and economic potential, including attracting large foreign investments into the national economy. The “Avaza” National Tourist Zone has become yet another symbol of Turkmenistan's peace and good-neighborliness policy.
