October 1st marked the Proclamation Day of the People's Republic of China. On this occasion, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, on behalf of the people and the Government of Turkmenistan, as well as on his own behalf, sent heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping and Premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China Li Keqiang, as well as to all the friendly people of the country.

The head of state stressed that, thanks to the work of the Chinese people, the wise and far-sighted state policy over the past period, the People's Republic of China has been able to achieve great success in all spheres of life, and the ideas of socialism with Chinese characteristics of the new era inspire the Chinese people to new grandiose achievements in the name of realizing into the life of the Chinese Dream.

The People's Republic of China, the first country in the world to establish diplomatic relations with independent Turkmenistan, is currently one of the most important economic partners of our country, President Serdar Berdimuhamedov noted, emphasizing that Turkmenistan attaches particular importance to the development of strategic relations with China.

It should be noted that this year marked a significant anniversary - the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Turkmenistan and the People's Republic of China. Relations between our states have a long history. Throughout its length, a beneficial process of mutual penetration of cultures, traditions, worldviews took place between the two peoples. Once connecting our countries, the Great Silk Road was a bridge not only for mutually beneficial trade exchange, but also for broad civilizational communication.

Revived in a new capacity, today it serves as a powerful impetus for the rapprochement of peoples and countries, contributes to the establishment of political, trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian ties, promotes mutual understanding and cooperation, and the emergence of solid foundations for relations between states and regions.

At present, Turkmen-Chinese relations are developing in a wide range of areas based on the principles of mutual respect, friendship and consideration of each other's interests.

Strategic cooperation between the two friendly states has reached a qualitatively new level of development.

China is a major trading partner of our country. One of the key areas of cooperation is the oil and gas sector, where a number of major joint projects have already been implemented. Evidence of this is the commissioning at the end of 2009 of the strategic gas pipeline Turkmenistan-China. The implementation of this project was an example of a truly partnership based on equality, awareness of mutual advantages, on a large-scale vision of the prospects and opportunities that opened up with the start of the gas pipeline. Now it provides long-term supplies of Turkmen "blue fuel" to China. It should be noted that both countries have great potential in this sector.

In Turkmenistan, large Chinese companies are actively working in various fields together with domestic specialists. Chinese business is widely represented on the commodity exchange of our country, where it buys cotton, iodine, bromine, oil products and other Turkmen goods.

Contacts are also developing in the areas of transport, logistics, communications and telecommunications, and digital technologies.

Our country intends to further expand trade and economic relations, cultural and humanitarian ties, in particular, in the area of science, education, culture, healthcare, sports and tourism.

The activity of the Intergovernmental Turkmen-Chinese Committee for Cooperation, aimed at determining priority areas of trade and economic relations and creating favorable conditions for closer partnership, contributes to the intensification of bilateral cooperation.

As the main priority of interaction, Turkmenistan considers all-round assistance to the consolidation of peace, regional stability, provision of conditions for the safe and sustainable development of our friendly states and peoples.

Turkmenistan successfully cooperates with the PRC not only on a bilateral, but also on a multilateral basis - both through major international organizations and authoritative regional structures, and in the "Central Asia-China" format, with the peoples of which the Turkmen people are united by centuries-old ties of friendship and the historical commonality of cultural and spiritual traditions.

Comprehensive strengthening of political, diplomatic, trade, economic, cultural and humanitarian ties with these partner countries is an important vector of the foreign policy strategy of sovereign Turkmenistan, under the leadership of President Serdar Berdimuhamedov, implementing the policy of "open doors" and broad international cooperation.
