The book introduces the reader to the process of improving the political system of the society; strengthening the economic potential of the country; ensuring social protection of the people; transformation of towns and villages.
Materials highlighting ideological issues hold a special place in the book.

They are patriotism, humanism, justice, morals, respects for unique customs and traditions, adherence to universal principles of integrity, conscience, honor and healthy lifestyle.
The new publication reveals not only the depth and innovative spirit of reform ideas, but also the progressive focus and humanistic nature of the political course of the head of Turkmenistan.
The key role in improving the laws regulating the nation’s policy in various spheres belongs to the Constitution of Turkmenistan as the political and legal basis for establishment, development and consolidation of the national statehood.

The importance and timeliness of the constitutional reform allowed creating conditions for comprehensive modernization of the national legal and regulatory framework with regard to current reality.
